Fresno Nursing Error Lawyers

Nursing staff in hospitals and other medical care facilities often plays an essential role by assisting physicians and performing key functions in patient care. Due to the economy and budget cuts, many nurses are more overwhelmed than ever before- often requiring nurses to attend to many more patients than usual and contributing to the number of nursing errors. Nursing errors can directly or indirectly injure patients in a number of ways, especially when these errors are due to negligence or a failure to provide a standard level of care. Common types of nursing errors include:

  • Failure to diagnose a condition in a timely manner
  • Misdiagnosis of a condition based on a symptoms or medical history
  • Improperly updating a physician on a patient’s condition
  • Failing to update the attending doctor on changes in the patient’s condition
  • Refusal of pain medication or other options for pain management
  • Negligent postoperative care (such as suture dressing changes)
  • Administering the wrong medication or improper dosage

Because doctors rely on nurses to relay information on the condition of the patient and also execute some levels of treatment, a nursing error can influence a doctor's actions and result in injury to the patient.
