Generally a malpractice in nursing is the outcome of negligence by the professional, thus causing physical and emotional hurt to the patient under care. Mistakes during surgical assistance, baby delivery, medication etc are some of the failures witnessed in the nursing sector. Usually the basic legal issues in malpractices are the same as in common neglect.

Damages: Damages including death, disability, prolonged pain, deformity, or added cost to staying in a hospital are usually capitalized on by the clients lawyers/attorneys.
4. Smell There is a lot that a nurse can tell just by using their sense of smell. Be it the smell of your patients urine, an infected wound or stools. Once youve established something doesnt smell right, a nurse is able to proceed with confidence.
Legal causation: A legal cause for nursing negligence comes to force when it is confirmed that a breach in the standard of care caused physical damage and or emotional damage to the patient under care.
