Did A Nurse Harm You Or A Loved One?
Doctors, surgeons and anesthesiologists are not the only medical professionals responsible for your health and well-being. In most cases, patients have more contact with their nurses than any other staff member.

What Is Nursing Malpractice?
Nurses are responsible for the hands-on care of patients. They are the eyes and ears of doctors, making sure patients of all conditions are monitored properly. Many medical malpractice mistakes happen when there is a failure to monitor a patient properly or contact a doctor when there is a reason for concern.
We have protected the rights of clients who have suffered from nursing malpractice when a nurse in charge of their care failed to take proper steps in the following situations:
- Infections or signs of Infection
- Changes in blood pressure
- Signs of a heart attack
- Circulation problems
- Fetal distress
Many cases of apparent nursing malpractice come from the inadequate staffing of both nurses and doctors. The pressure to see more patients leads to more mistakes. Today’s doctors are seeing five or six patients in the time they used to see two or three patients. As people get pushed through the system, incidents of nursing malpractice become more and more common.
