Nursing Negligence Claims Solicitors
Our medical negligence solicitors specialise in nursing negligence claims. Our specialist solicitors have secured compensation in a variety of cases involving nursing negligence, errors and mistakes that have caused serious injuries to our clients.
There are many types of nursing negligence cases, but the common element of all is that a patient has suffered either mentally, physically or both whilst under the care of a nurse. This may include mistakes made by a nurse while assisting in the delivery of a child, failure to provide the correct medication or causing injury by not following correct procedures.
Standards of Care
The standard of care provided may result in a nursing negligence case. There are many negligent actions that can result in injury to the patient, including:
- Failure to assess a patient’s condition, including blood pressure, vital signs or blood sugar levels on time
- Inability to take proper action or notify other healthcare professionals when there are significant changes in a patient’s condition
- Medication and/or documentation errors
- Misuse of a medical device
- Failure to record vital information on a patient's chart
- Failure to follow doctor's orders
Negligence occurs when a nurse performs an act that is deemed below a competence level that is expected of someone in their position. Consequences to the nurse can range from suspension or firing to malpractice suits and loss of license. Neglect can be intentional or unintentional and can occur for many different reasons.
