Louisiana Nursing Malpractice Lawyer
There is a shortage of hospital nurses in the United States. This means that workloads for nurses are greater, with more patients and more duties. Nurses are forced to accept overtime they may not want or should not take. Fatigue and stress are often a part of a nurse’s work environment.
Unfortunately, this situation has lead to an increase in nurse malpractice cases. Whatever their working conditions, nurses are responsible for providing the proper standard of care to their patients. When they do not, whether due to negligent errors or misconduct, they are liable for any injuries caused and should be held accountable.
