Clinical Negligence against a Nurse

When you are receiving any type of medical treatment, a nurse will usually play a fairly major role in ensuring that you receive just the type of treatment that you are looking for. Although in many situations they do a fantastic job of nursing you back to health and providing you with everything that you need for a safe and successful recovery, unfortunately this is not always the case and as a result you can sometimes be left with the option of making a compensation claim.

In any medical environment you are entitled to receive the best possible treatment for any injuries or illnesses that you might have, and if you feel this hasn't been the case, you could look to make a compensation claim against anyone involved. 

What injuries might I have sustained to make a claim?

Although a nurse will often not directly diagnose you or perform surgery on you, they do play a big role in ensuring that you are comfortable and safe throughout the treatment process. The responsibilities of a nurse can include administering anaesthetic, ensuring that your vitals are in check and often working as a surgical assistant to ensure that the correct implements are passed to you throughout the process, any negligence in these areas can lead to infections, a worsening of existing symptoms and even the development of new symptoms.

In which situations can I make a claim?

Nurses could be the subject of a compensation claim in a number of different situations and these include:

  • Claims for a failure to provide adequate treatment
  • Claims for neglect in care 
  • Claims for failing to administer appropriate medication
  • Claims for failing to report a crucial change in vitals
  • Claims for failure to provide adequate hygienic equipment.
