Nursing malpractice is a rapidly developing area of medical malpractice. Nurses in today’s society often spend more time with patients than the doctors do, and nurses consequently bear more responsibility when it comes to a patient’s health and safety. Some malpractice suits specifically name nurses for their role in contributing to a victim’s substandard level of care.
The lawyers of Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. have successfully tried nursing malpractice lawsuits involving:
- Lack of proper training
- Medication errors
- Failure to carry out a doctor’s orders
- Delayed care
- Documentation errors
- Fatigue from working excessive hours
