According to recent statistics, 32% of medication errors are caused by administration errors, which means nurses may be responsible for a third of all medication mistakes. Medication errors, or errors involving the prescribing, dispensing, or administering of drugs, are often the result of human error. While to err is human, hospitals need to have systems and procedures in place to prevent nurse errors that can result in serious harm to patients.
Nursing errors can also manifest as:
- Hospital falls
- Equipment mishandling
- Inadequate infection management
- Inaccurate patient documentation
All of these things can result in potentially life-altering or life-threatening circumstances. When hospitals fail to provide nurses with the systems they need to safely care for their patients, they need to be held accountable in a court of law. However, many patients do not feel empowered to pursue medical malpractice cases—they are often complex and difficult to navigate, and many patients are not even sure if they have a case.
