Nurses are on the front lines in many health care settings, including hospitals, walk-in clinics and care homes. Most nurses consistently offer excellent care and are indispensable members of medical teams. It is the relative few who make mistakes or fail to meet standards of practice.
Nursing errors cause all manner of Personal Injury, even fatality. There is a long-term impact on patients and families as they work to heal from the original medical condition, and the effects of the mistake, which may have made the underlying condition worse. In the case of a loved one's passing, legal action may prevent the tragedy from happening to someone else.
