An Introduction to Nursing Errors
Generally speaking, nursing care is a generic term describing medical treatment provided by trained medical practitioners that aren't doctors or surgeons. In other words, nursing care encompasses all medical care provided by nurses and other medical professionals under the supervision of a doctor or surgeon.
Although supervised, these nurses and other medical support staff often lack the sophisticated medical training needed to perform the advanced procedures they're asked to perform in DFW's hospitals. These factors often lead to them committing "black and white" mistakes that are a bit easier for an attorney to attach liability, whereas mistakes made by doctors ,with thorough medical training, often fall into a "gray" area and are a bit more difficult to prove as a result.
Types of Nursing Errors
Unfortunately, the types of errors committed by nursing personnel often cause the injured patient to suffer severe and irreversible injuries. Nursing errors happen every day in almost any imaginable setting, including nursing homes, during childbirth, and during almost every conventional medical procedure. These errors are often attributable to the medical professional's negligent inattention, lack of advanced education, and/or sleep. For example, a nurse at Parkland or one of Baylor's many medical facilities may cause significant, life-altering injuries by accidentally administering an unsafe amount of a particular medication because she failed to double check the patient's chart or simply misunderstood instructions from the patient's doctor.
Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Nursing home patients that have suffered injuries due to the abuse and neglect are either caused by a nursing home employee's negligence, recklessness, or their intentional conduct. Unfortunately, many of the injuries suffered by nursing home patients require long-term treatment or result in the patient's death. For example, a type of injury often witnessed by our firm involves the severe injuries or death caused to a patient whose caretakers fail to properly administer their medication or therapy.
