Medical Practitioners Stockton Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Stockton Nursing Error Attorney

The Stockton medical malpractice attorney has many years of experience investigating malpractice cases to determine which specific medical professionals must be held responsible for the injuries in a particular case.  Sometimes doctors are held accountable for medical malpractice when the negligence was actually the fault of a nurse on staff.

Nurses are vital members of every hospital and doctor’s office across the globe.  A nurse will usually spend more time with a patient than a doctor ever will.  Nurses prepare patients for examinations and surgeries, draw blood, take notes for the doctor, administer medicines, and much more.

Because nurses have so much contact with patients, one single mistake could be fatal. Nursing errors occur both in the context of patient treatment and in medical administration.  Medication errors are a common mistake that nurses make.  But nurses are also largely responsible for the keeping of accurate medical records. Failing to make a note of an administered medication or failing to give the right record to the right doctor is a form of medical malpractice.

When a nurse makes a mistake during a treatment under the instructions of a doctor or on their own accord, this mistake can destroy a patient’s life and the lives of his or her family.  Regardless of who is at fault, every victim of medical malpractice is entitled to recover damages for their losses.
