Nursing Mistake Attorneys in Maryland

Helping Clients Fight to Restore their Quality of Life

Healthcare can be a tricky field. Medical science is more advanced than ever, but far from perfect. Additionally, medical professionals are only human—no two people are alike, and it can be stressful to treat patients under pressure. Unfortunately, making the wrong decisions when it comes to treatment can come with consequences. While medical professionals such as nurses are not expected to be perfect, those whose errors are due to negligence or other irresponsible behavior must be held accountable for the damage they cause.

What Nursing Mistakes Are Considered Medical Malpractice?

Nurses are often the first medical professionals to come into contact with patients at hospitals and clinics. Nurses undergo extensive training and are responsible for many important procedures such as checking a patient’s vital signs, obtaining relevant medical history, monitoring patients, administering medications, and relaying important patient information to physicians and doctors.

Nursing mistakes that may be considered medical malpractice could include:

  • Administering the wrong medication or dosage
  • Failure to communicate properly with a patient or physician
  • Failure to monitor a patient’s vital signs or conditions
  • Improper use of medical equipment

It is important to understand that not all mistakes made by a healthcare professional constitute medical malpractice. For example, a surgeon who performs an organ transplant cannot be held responsible for a patient whose body does not accept the organ. If, however, the surgeon leaves a scalpel inside the patient’s body, they could be held liable for medical malpractice.

This is to say that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to determining what events constitute nursing malpractice. However, if you can prove that you were injured because a nurse acted negligently and in a matter that is atypical of other nursing professionals, you will have a strong case.

Fighting for Your Right to Fair Compensation

If you have been injured due to a nursing professional’s misconduct, you will likely deal with costly health problems for years to come. As the settlements in nursing mistake cases can be sizeable, malpractice insurance companies will stop at nothing to redirect the blame and avoid paying a settlement.

With the help of an experienced nursing mistakes attorney in your area, you bolster your chances of winning a claim. This is because lawyers understand the laws that pertain to your case, what rights patients are owed, and the tactics insurance companies and medical facilities will use to protect their bottom lines.
