Nurses are there for your benefit, ensuring that your treatment goes as smoothly as possible so that you are completely at ease when you undergo an operation. Unfortunately however, mistakes can be made whether it’s through carelessness or negligence and this can cause a lot of trauma for you – especially when you put your trust in a nurse to help you.
