At The Fitch Law Firm LLC, our Dayton personal injury lawyers can handle your case from start to finish while you rest and recover from your injuries. Call us today to discuss your case in a free consultation.
How Does Nursing Neglect Occur?
Nursing neglect can occur in a variety of ways in different medical settings. For example, injuries can occur if a nurse fails to:
- Administer the proper medication in the proper dosage
- Consider the patient’s medical history listed in their chart
- Communicate with other medical professionals
- Update a patient’s medical chart
- Properly monitor an at-risk patient
- Properly discharge a patient
- Properly restrain a bed-bound patient
In some instances of nursing neglect, understaffing at a medical facility plays a key role in a nurse’s ability to properly care for a patient, according to the Journal of Advanced Nursing. This may make the administrators of the medical facility vicariously liable.
For example, the following medical facilities may bear liability for nursing neglect:
- Doctor’s offices, including specialists
- Nursing homes
- Out-patient facilities
- Assisted living facilities
- Dental and orthodontic offices
- In-home nursing companies
- Rehabilitation centers
Our Dayton nursing neglect attorneys can investigate your injuries to identify all liable parties and pursue them for their portion of the fault. We advocate for victims of medical malpractice, and we can seek fair compensation to help you access the medical care you need to recover.
