Examples of Nursing Negligence

Liability for Nursing Negligence
Liability is a key issue in any nursing malpractice case. Hospitals are often named as defendants in nursing malpractice cases, because most nurses are employees of a hospital. In some cases the attending doctor may be liable. If an attending doctor is responsible for supervising the nurse, he or she may be liable for the nursing malpractice.
