Nursing Negligence Compensation Claims

Nurses are under far more pressure today than they ever were, and it is inevitable that sometimes errors are made in their duties. Nursing negligence compensation claims can arise from any sector of nursing, where nurses have failed in their duties towards the patient which subsequently lead to an injury which could otherwise have been avoided. To qualify as nursing negligence, compensation claims have to show that damages of some sort were sustained through unacceptable behaviour, a failure to communicate an important medical issue to the patient or colleagues, or that the nurse has demonstrated a lack of skill or the failure to apply it.

There is a major distinction between nursing medical negligence and negligence which has led to a slip or fall in a hospital, and nursing negligence compensation claims have to relate to the treatment of a medical condition. Failure to clean up a spill on the floor which causes you to slip would be dealt with in a personal injury claim – even if it affects your medical condition. In order to pursue a nursing negligence compensation claim, you have to prove that the actions of the nurse (or lack of them) were unreasonable in the course of their duty.

Claiming Nursing Negligence Compensation Claims

Nursing negligence compensation claims may not only be applicable to you as a patient. If you have a child that has suffered an injury due to a lack of care, or an elderly relative in a nursing home who has suffered a physical or psychological trauma as a result of nursing negligence, you should be entitled to make a nursing negligence compensation claim. It’s important to note that the claim will probably be against the hospital or health board, not the nurse personally. Your best course of action is to speak with a specialised solicitor, familiar with cases of medical negligence, to determine what action you can take and how you should go about it.
