When Is a Nurse or Doctor Negligent?

A doctor or nurse’s negligence occurs when a medical professional fails to provide proper care, and the care falls below the recognized standards established by law for the protection of patients. There are many factors that contribute to negligence, including over-exhaustion, lack of training or not paying attention. Whatever the reason, if a doctor or nurse harms a patient, he/she should be held accountable for his/her actions.

Nurse and Doctor Negligence Claims

Doctors and nurses can share equal responsibility for several areas of medical negligence, such as:

  • Failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, or delayed diagnosis. These types of medical errors can be especially harmful when related to heart attacks, strokes and cancers. In certain cases a delay of even a few minutes from misdiagnosis can prove fatal.
  • Medication errors. The failure to determine allergies to medications or to monitor the interactions of drugs administered can have fatal consequences.
  • Failure to communicate with other healthcare providers or the patient.
  • Failure to provide prompt treatment in emergency situations.
