As nurses, we are grateful for monitoring equipment. The equipment tells us what we need to know at the touch of a button. But, we also know that relying on these machines alone can take the skill out of nursing. In the absence of monitoring equipment, there is no need to panic. The human body possesses what we need to carry out a basic if not effective nursing, life-saving assessment/judgement should things go wrong - our senses! A nurse needs to be able to tell if something is off just by using their senses. The following are some tips on how we can utilise these senses and act in a timely manner thus also being able to save lives.
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.
2. Both need to cultivate an eye for detail Detectives observe their surroundings carefully, even when they think there is nothing special to observe, because they never know what might end up being important to solve their case. Nurses observe even the littlest thing about a patient because they know every bit of information may make a difference in that patients care or recovery.
7. Both become techno-savvy Detectives and Nurses know how to use a computer and find information via the internet.
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.
