Medical Malpractice and Nurses

There is a variety of medical professional that can be found guilty of medical malpractice when they harm patients through negligent actions. Many people assume that the term “medical malpractice” primarily applies to negligent doctors, but this is not the case. For example, nurses are often the cause of errors that harm patients in hospitals or clinics.

Nurses are often overworked, placed in charge of a number of patients, and may be fatigued. When these things are combined, the potential for neglect or medical error becomes all too high. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured by a nurse, contact your Iowa medical malpractice lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233 today.

Errors Commonly Made By Nurses

When a nurse is working with a number of patients, he or she may make mistakes such as:

  • Medication errors: This includes giving the wrong dosage, giving the wrong medication, or continuing to give a medication that the doctor has removed from the patient’s chart.
  • Wrong treatment: A nurse may engage in routine treatment for a patient and perform it incorrectly or perform the wrong treatment entirely.
  • Neglect: Nurses may fail to respond to a patient that is in distress and looking for help.

If you or a loved one has been harmed while staying in a hospital or visiting a clinic, there are a number of parties who may be at fault. Our experienced Iowa medical malpractice attorneys can help you determine who is responsible for the injuries you have suffered.
