Ready To Fight For You When A Nurse Or Residency Error Results In Injury
Nurses and other medical professionals have a vital role in treating and caring for patients. Unfortunately, many hospitals are understaffed. As a result, nurses are overworked and can make unintended, but very serious, errors. For instance, nurses can give patients incorrect medication or incorrect doses of medication. Nurses may not properly chart a patient’s symptoms or medical issues, creating a number of potential problems. Problems also may arise if a nurse does not communicate properly with the nurse who is working the next shift.
Many hospitals rely on residents to offer care. Upon graduating medical school, new doctors are typically trained in a residency. It is not uncommon for residents to go days without rest while tending to patients. Even though residents are generally dedicated individuals, any person who goes 24 hours or longer without sleep may be less likely to provide an adequate level of care.
