In the medical community, there is a saying that nurses are the doctor's eyes and ears. However, if those eyes are not looking or those ears are not listening, or if what they see and hear are not reported back to the doctor, serious harm can come to the patient. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a nursing error, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Raymond J. Slomski, P.C., in Phoenix, Arizona, are here to hold the negligent party accountable.
What Went Wrong?
There are no limits to the possible mistakes that nurses can make, which is why it is important that they remain diligent. They need to recognize potential signs and symptoms of complications, so they can report them to the doctor for diagnosis and treatment. They need to make note of allergies and make certain doctors are apprised of potential issues. Not doing so could lead to misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a medical condition or a medication error.
While many nursing errors are the result of the nurse not communicating properly with the doctor, others may involve blatant mistakes. Our attorneys have decades of experience handling these cases, so we have seen things like medication errors in which a nurse provided one patient with another patient's medication, or provided the wrong dosage of the correct medication, or neglected to provide the necessary medication altogether. Regardless of the medical mistake, we will hold the negligent nurse accountable.
