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.
7. Both become techno-savvy Detectives and Nurses know how to use a computer and find information via the internet.
6. Both document well Detectives keep careful notes of what they find. Nurses know if they didnt document what they did, as far as the world is concerned, they did not do it.
6. Trust your instinct Nurses have an uncanny way of using their gut to determine if/when something is not quite right with their patients. This, in my view, is what makes a nurse a bit special. Nurses are able to achieve this because they are the ones who spend the most amount of time with the patient and offer hands-on care, so, they can tell when a characteristic is out of the ordinary, even without medical evidence at first. So if youre a nurse like me and you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach, that something isnt quite right, then it probably isnt.
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.
