Nursing Errors and Medical Negligence

Nursing errors can arise because of errors made by individual nurses as well as negligence on the part of the hospital itself. In an effort to save money, some hospitals understaff nurses, leaving each nurse to care for more patients than he or she can safely handle.

Many of the nurse's responsibilities involve monitoring the patient and reporting to the doctor on the patient's condition. When this critical function is not performed properly, patients are put at risk.

Nursing duties include:

  • Monitoring patients for infection
  • Monitoring blood pressure and other vital signs
  • Administering medicine

Cold and Flu Season: Watch for Medical Errors

November 20, 2013 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

Fall and winter mark the start of cold and flu season which is never a fun time for anyone. We invest in multiple boxes of Kleenex, and purchase extra bottles of cough and cold medicine, along with the medication to help us sleep through the night.  Along with the average cold and flu also come unique strains of viruses that pop up this time of year.  The viruses can tend to linger longer, and make life miserable, in general.  How do you know when something just feels different than it has in the past, and what do you need to tell your doctor so you are prescribed the correct medication?

But, as we have heard regarding medical errors, wrongful death lawsuits and botched surgeries, even those we hold in the highest regard of trust for our safety, health and well-being, can err on the side of danger.
