A nurse at a hospital made a mistake when administering my medication. Can I sue the hospital for the medication mistake?



Many lawsuits are brought against hospitals because of the negligent actions of a nurse. If you were injured by a hospital employee because of negligence then that hospital can be held liable for the injuries you sustain.  If the nurse was employed by the hospital and was doing his or her job at the time of the injury, then the hospital can be held accountable for injuries.

Nursing malpractice occurs when a nurse does not perform the job in a way that a normally competent nurse would – causing injury to the patient. Nursing malpractice can occur in many ways. Two common ways include:

  • Failing to take action - Emergencies require swift and competent attention and if a nurse fails to take appropriate steps when a patient needs medical attention this can be considered negligence;
  • Improperly administering medication – If a nurse makes a mistake when administering a medication or that nurse and the hospital may be held liable for injuries to the patient.

If you or a loved one were injured because of a nurse’s negligent actions you should contact a board certified attorney to investigate the facts of your case.
