Many times, it is not just a doctor who is at fault for medical errors. Medical personnel including nurses, technicians, and other support staff all have important duties to patients that, if neglected, can result in serious injuries or death.
If you have been injured as a result of a negligent nurse, or any other health care professional, you have a right to receive compensation for your injuries. At Kanoski Bresney, our Springfield medical malpractice lawyers have been fighting on behalf of injured people throughout central Illinois for more than 40 years.
Injuries Caused By Nursing Errors
Our team of skilled trial litigators includes experienced medical malpractice attorneys who are committed to holding medical professionals responsible for injuries caused by medical negligence. We handle a broad range of medical malpractice claims, including claims resulting from nursing errors. Examples of nurse errors include:
- Failure to properly communicate with doctors
- Failure to properly take or record vital signs
- Dispensing the wrong medication or wrong medication dosage to patients
- Failure to perform necessary care on a timely basis
- Performance of medical tasks for which the nurse is not properly trained
- General carelessness that leads to a patient’s injury or death
Causes Of Nurse Errors
Tragically, many nurse errors are the result of insufficient staffing, fatigue, inadequate training and other institutional defects that result when a hospital, nursing home or other health care provider emphasize profits over patient safety.
