What are Common Nursing Staff Errors/Negligent Actions?
Nurses are often charged with handling massive patient loads, especially those that work in hospital settings. When patients are critical or require extensive care, this can make the problem much worse. Nurses often have to contend with interruptions, extended shifts and sometimes work past the point of exhaustion when the team is short-staffed. This makes the likelihood of error much more significant among these healthcare professionals. Common nursing staff errors/negligent actions include:
- Failing to respond to warning alarms promptly
- Giving patients improper medication doses
- Failing to communicate with doctors or leave notes on patients for other nurses
- Improperly using medical devices on patients
- Performing medical procedures on the wrong patient
Sometimes, the fault may not even be with the nurse but rather with the facility that does not follow proper staffing ratios. Nurses are often overworked and poorly supervised, leading to errors resulting from facilities that will not invest in more staff, training, and resources. You should not be forced to endure the lasting impacts of this traumatic event while the facility in question continues to provide substandard care and lack proper nursing support.
Whatever the reason for the error, seeking legal guidance after an error was made or negligent action was taken can help you to navigate the aftermath of the incident.
