When Nurses Make Critical Errors

Nurses serve as the eyes and ears of doctors in patient care settings. When a nurse makes a mistake, it can cause a cascade of errors that can lead to patient injury or death.

At Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum, LLP in Miami, our lawyers represent the victims of nurse and doctor negligence in South and Central Florida. We have secured millions of dollars in compensation for our clients, who include injured patients and family members of wrongful death victims.

Our Miami attorneys litigate a wide range of medical negligence cases involving nurse errors, including:

  • Failure to update a patient’s medical history
  • Failure to assist patients when needed
  • Administering the wrong drug or the wrong dose of a drug
  • IV and catheter errors
  • Failure to reposition an immobilized patient, resulting in bedsores
  • Failure to respond to a patient emergency
  • Failure to communicate a change in the patient’s condition to the appropriate medical doctor

Lawyers at Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum, LLP represented the estate of a woman who died because of a nurse’s mistake. In that case, a nurse’s error resulted in her administering double to triple the prescribed dose of the anticoagulant Heparin to a man. The overdose killed the patient, whose family we represent in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Many cases of nursing negligence can be traced to two trends in medical care. One is to place greater responsibility on nurses. Nurses now provide some types of patient care that used to be provided by doctors. In addition, deliberate understaffing has left nurses with more patients that they can adequately care for.
