Kinds of Negligence
Negligence occurs when the expected standard of care is not met by a caregiver. If a practice is something that a nurse would do under the best of situations, and is agreed upon by other nursing professionals, it is not considered negligent.
Proving negligence in the nursing profession is more complicated than proving negligence by a doctor, but this does not mean that nursing malpractice does not occur. The hardest part of a nursing malpractice claim is proving the nurse as the liable party for the injury.
There are three criteria that must be met in order to file a negligence claim against a nursing professional:
- There must be an injury or medical condition that is the result of negligent care
- There must be a record of the nurses failure to perform the duties and responsibilities properly regarding the
- patients request and care
- A direct failure of responsibility in the patients care during their stay at a medical facility
