Nursing Negligence Compensation Claims

Nurses provide an invaluable and fantastic service most of the time. However, the pressures of the NHS are such that sometimes things go wrong. Negligent nursing care can cause injury and harm to patients, both mentally or physically. A nurse however is not a doctor and they should not be judged by the same standards, but they still have a duty of care to every patient.

Nurses have a responsibility to be an advocate for the patient. Although they are not responsible for making medical decisions and judgments, the nurse has should intervene if decisions and judgments are not consistent with the standard of care.

Often it is not a single act which is negligent but the care over a number of days, weeks or even months which falls below an acceptable standard.

A nurse can be negligent if they fail to assess or monitor patients correctly with blood pressure, blood sugar levels and vital signs. They could fail to record key medical information on a patient’s records, notify doctors of changes in conditions or even ignoring doctor’s orders.

Injury can be caused by medication errors or not following correct procedures.
