Compensation for the negligence of a hospital nurse

Being in hospital is not a position that many of us enjoy being in, but if you do find yourself in this situation then chances are that you will be hoping to receive the best possible treatment that you can to get back to health in next to no time.

Although the majority of our healthcare professionals do the utmost that they can to ensure that we remain in the best of health, unfortunately this is not always the case and if you find that you have been the victim of a negligence staff member – in this instance a negligent hospital nurse – then you could look to make a claim for compensation.

What should I expect from a hospital nurse?

A hospital nurse is a fully trained professional who should give you the best possible treatment available to deal with any injuries that you have sustained. A nurse is generally responsible for monitoring your vital signs, ensuring that you receive the right medications and that you are comfortable and looked after throughout your stay at the hospital. If a nurse fails to do this then you could look to make a claim directly against them for negligence.

Where could I look to make a compensation claim?

Compensation claims can be made in a whole host of situations. Some common examples of where you might look to make a claim include:

·         Claims for a failure to provide adequate food to a patient

·         Claims for negligent duty of care

·         Claims for failure to adequately take the vital signs of a patient

·         Claims for bed sores and other injuries derived from negligence

·         Claims for mistakes made by a hospital nurse.
