Nursing Errors in San Jose, California

San Jose Nursing Malpractice Attorney

The nursing staff at a hospital or any health care facility builds the foundation upon which medical care is provided. A nurse may provide a number of different services to a patient, depending on his or her training and certification. This may include: recording medical histories and symptoms, helping with diagnostic tests and the analysis of test results, operating medical machinery, administering medication, carrying out treatment, and assisting with patient follow-up, rehabilitation and postoperative care. Generally, a nurse may act to support a licensed physician or surgeon in some manner, but more and more in today's hospitals nurses operate independently and may have a great deal of responsibility in regard to patient care.

As such, nursing errors may be extremely serious and may affect a patient in different ways. An error or any act of negligence on the part of a nurse may result in a medication error, the misdiagnosis of a patient, improper discharge of a patient, postoperative infection, and so much more. At Pacific Attorney Group, we represent patients throughout San Jose who have been injured as the result of nursing errors.

What is Nursing Malpractice?

Malpractice in the area of nursing may include any failure by a nurse to provide a standard level of care to a patient. Considering the many areas of patient care that a nurse may handle, nursing malpractice may encompass a great number of actions or omissions on the part of any nurse. To establish a San Jose nursing malpractice claim, it will be necessary for the plaintiff (injured patient) to prove that the nurse did not provide a level of care based upon his or her duties and current medical standards.
