Similar to malpractice cases involving doctors, nursing malpractice occurs when a nurse fails to completely perform his or her medical duties that a normally competent nurse in the same situation would—and that failure harms the patient.
When it comes to liability, there are often two parties who may be held responsible for nursing malpractice: the hospital or the attending daughter. A hospital may be liable if the nurse was an employee of the hospital, the nurse was fulfilling a job duty when the patient suffered injury, and an independent doctor was not in control of the nurse. On the other hand, if an attending doctor is supervising the nurse, the hospital may be off the hook despite being the nurse’s employer.
Since medical malpractice law is complex, it is essential to seek counsel from a lawyer. We offer the award-winning, trial-ready counsel necessary to recover your entitled compensation.
