Sacramento Nursing Errors

Nursing Malpractice Attorney in Sacramento, California

Not all instances of medical malpractice are traced directly back to a doctor. In fact, nurses play an important role in hospitals and all medical facilities, acting as the eyes and ears of doctors and advocates for patients. The level of care a nurse provides to a patient may therefore have a significant impact on his or her ability to be properly diagnosed and treated. A patient relies upon a nurse as the first line of defense if anything goes wrong, and a single error, mistake or act of negligence on the part of a nurse may lead to further injury and illness.

Undergoing a free consultation with a Sacramento nursing malpractice attorney at our law firm will be an important first step to take in regard to your claim. An attorney can talk to you about the situation and what led to your or a loved one's injuries in order to make an initial assessment of whether you have grounds for a civil lawsuit. You can get the information you need to make an informed choice about moving forward with a case and seeking financial compensation for your injuries.

Examples of Nursing Errors and Malpractice

Following are some examples of nursing errors that may occur in Sacramento hospitals:

  • A nurse who fails to properly monitor a patient
  • Slow response to an emergency call
  • Improper treatment administered in the case of an emergency
  • Failure to properly carry out a doctor's instructions
  • Ignoring or failing to put proper importance on a patient's complaints
  • Failure to communicate a patient's needs or concerns to a doctor, and vice versa

Negligence, lack of sleep, inexperience, lack of training, and general indifference may all lead to nursing errors. Whatever the cause of the nursing error that led to your injuries and what was involved, we may be able to help.

Medical malpractice claims are often the most complex civil cases to deal with. Although based in the common foundation that a doctor or other medical professional made a mistake or otherwise failed to provide proper care, proving medical malpractice and recovering financial damages goes far beyond this. It will be necessary to establish that the treatment you received was substandard in some way, and to do this your attorney will most likely have to involve medical professionals who can testify as expert witnesses to prove that the medical care provided was not up to current standards.
