Northwest Indiana Nursing Malpractice Lawyers
Errors, Neglect & Malpractice by Nurses
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.
Our Northwest Indiana nursing malpractice attorneys at Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. can take on cases involving:
- Lack of proper training
- Medication errors
- Failure to carry out a doctor’s orders
- Delayed care
- Documentation errors
- Fatigue from working excessive hours
- Failure to evaluate and respond to a patient’s needs
- In-home nursing malpractice
If you suspect malpractice or errors by a nurse, call (219) 212-2462. Your consultation is free and strictly confidential.
Representing Injured Patients & Their Families
Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) carry the same obligation as medical doctors and surgeons to provide standard care. Lapses in judgment, simple errors, inexperience, and neglect by any nurse can cause a patient to experience significant harm. Nurses act as patient advocates and are often responsible for monitoring patients and carrying out a doctor’s orders, making any act of negligence very dangerous.
When you work with a Northwest Indiana nursing malpractice lawyer at Theodoros & Rooth, P.C., we review your case and involve expert medical witnesses to determine if a nurse’s actions fell below the reasonable standard of care you were owed and resulted in harm to you. We have a thorough understanding of the codes governing the actions of nurses in Indiana, and we hold negligent parties responsible for their actions.
