Can you believe doctors once made "house calls?" Now, it is becoming common to just "check the box" on your electronic file, rather than even visiting your hospital room.
Electronic records may have benefits in records from one of your doctors being helpful and visible to another of your doctors. However, our firm has seen a troubling trend in nursing negligence. In the past, nurses checking on patients listened to them. Nurses' eyes and ears told them a lot.
Part of the problem may lie with the workload expected of nurses, in for-profit hospitals. It takes time to review a chart, prepare what is needed, get to a patent's room, and actually spend time with the patient. It is faster and easier to review or enter data in a patient's electronic medical records. In the worst cases nurses actually lie, saying they visited or spoke with a patient. It is very tempting.
Patients often know what is wrong with them, and know their own history and their family medical history. They are certainly a worthwhile source of information about the symptoms they are experiencing. This information is essential to their treatment and care. Neglecting it is negligence.
Medical negligence should be discouraged, and victims should be compensated. Our law firm does both. If you or someone you love has suffered due to nursing negligence, talk to an attorney who is also a doctor. Deborah Maliver is board-certified in internal medicine. While working as a physician, she witnessed shocking examples of carelessness and negligence. She is well-acquainted with the profession and highly qualified to assist you. In medical malpractice law cases, she is dedicated to holding medical professionals accountable.
