Unfortunately, the result of this exhaustion is nursing negligence - a type of medical malpractice that occurs when a nurse, who should be fully capable of providing quality nursing services to you or a family member, does not care for you or that family member in the way a reasonable nurse should.
Nursing Negligence Lawsuits and Standard of Care
When a nurse does not adhere to the standard of care of the nursing profession, then they can be classified as negligent.
Standard of care refers to the diagnostic and treatment process that a nurse needs to follow when caring for you. This care should be tailored specifically for you and your individual needs as dictated by your illness and clinical circumstance.
If a nurse does not adhere to the standard of care of their profession when treating you, then you will more than likely have grounds to open a nursing negligence medical malpractice lawsuit. Should you open this lawsuit, it’s important that you bear in mind that standard of care does not equal “perfection,” and that if there was a possible outcome that your treatment would fail which was reasonably expected to occur and was explained to you, then the nurse in question cannot be held accountable and you will not be able to file a viable nursing negligence medical malpractice lawsuit.
