Doctor, Nurse and Pharmacist Malpractice
If a physician, hospital or pharmacist makes an error in your medical care or dispenses the wrong medication or the incorrect dose it is important to act. If this error has caused you or your loved one harm, the negligent party needs to be held accountable for their actions. You deserve to be compensated for the injuries this error caused, which can include medical costs, lost income, funeral and burial expenses, and pain and suffering.
Nurses have an important responsibility to monitor patients, particularly when they are post-surgery in the ICU. With medically compromised individuals, life threatening conditions can arise quickly and be fatal. If the nursing staff fails to watch the patient properly and address symptoms as they arise, they can be held accountable for their negligent actions.
Intensive Care Errors
Failure to monitor a patient when they are ICU can have serious, or even fatal results. Examples of failing to monitor a patient include:
- Failure to monitor vital signs post-surgery.
- Failure to monitor an unborn child and mother.
- Failure to resuscitate a patient in a timely manner.
- Failure to monitor outpatient diagnostic tests.
- Failure to detect over medication.
Medication errors can create serious injury and even be fatal. These problems can stem from over-medicating a patient or prescribing a medication that conflicts with another medication that the patient is using.
