Medical Malpractice Attorney for San Diego Nurse Error Claims
A nursing error may occur in various different situations. Nurses often act as a patient's first line of defense and as a relay between the doctor and the patient, carrying out the doctor's advised course of treatment, administering medication, monitoring the patient, and responding to the patient's needs and concerns. Unfortunately, a nurse may be careless, overworked or neglectful in some way and may therefore commit a medication error, may provide poor follow up care or may allow a patient to develop a postoperative infection. These are just a few examples of how nursing errors may affect a patient in a San Diego area hospital. Depending on exactly what occurs, a patient may be at risk of suffering catastrophic injury or even losing his or her life due to a nursing error.
Although a nurse error may significantly impact your life and may make your future seem altogether bleak and difficult to face, a medical malpractice attorney may be able to assist you in filing a lawsuit against the nurse or hospital responsible for what you have experienced. This can help you with medical expenses, lost wages and in essence can make a big difference as you begin rebuilding your life and work on moving on.
