As a patient in a hospital we rely on nurses to monitor our conditions when injured or ill, and to take appropriate medical action as needed, whether that means administering medication, alerting a doctor, or taking another form of action.
Our Michigan nurse malpractice lawyers represent patients like you who have suffered injuries due to medical mistakes or errors made by nurses. Many of these injuries are very serious, often requiring extensive medical treatment and the need for additional surgeries. When a medical error causes a death, it can give rise to a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
Nurses have numerous responsibilities to hospitalized patients including:
- Monitoring blood pressure and other vital signs
- Administering medications
- Performing treatments
- Calling doctors to attend to a patient's urgent needs
- Failure to follow the hospital's chain of command
In some cases, nurses may fail to provide care recognized as standard practice, which may harm or injure patients. They may fail to recognize serious conditions early enough, fail to notify the doctor of emergencies or fail to give the proper medication. The failure of a nurse to properly care for a patient gives rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit. Compensation for these types of lawsuits may include medical expenses, lost income, cost of care, and pain and suffering (includes physical pain, disfigurement, disability, loss of quality of life and emotional distress).
