For many patients, nurses are the primary caregivers. Nurses must uphold standards of practice that ensure your safety and well-being. Advocating for clients harmed by errors by nurses and other medical professionals is a large part of our practice.
The Responsibilities of Nurses
Nurses are skilled professionals with a wide range of medical knowledge. They provide primary care in clinics, hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. While nursing errors are the exception, they do occur, including:
- Incorrect medication
- Incorrect dosage
- Failure to identify infection
- Misdiagnosis of worsening patient symptoms
- Malpractice in a surgical environment
Any successful legal action for nurse negligence requires, first and foremost, an in-depth understanding of the role nurses play in health care. Developing the causative link between actions (or inaction) and the effects suffered is key to a strong case.
At Stevenson Whelton LLP, we have extensive experience in cases involving medical malpractice. Our investigation of your circumstances can reveal whether legal action is warranted and advisable. If you choose to advance a claim, we have the knowledge, experience and skill to represent you.
