A typical case of medical negligence would include a physician expert in its intervention that performs poorly, that forgets a scalpel or other surgical instruments in its patient or surgery that causes some kind of wound or internal bleeding by making a cut in the wrong place in the collective imagination. In other cases, we tend to think of a medical specialist who does not properly detect some kind of pathology so for when this is openly pronounced treatment options have been reduced considerably. However, there is not a similar awareness in relation to nurses, a very particular type of medical science professionals who perform an activity of assistance to maximum level (doctors, physicians and Surgeons) optional, resulting in its equally important work on our health care. Factors that foster the negligence in the field of nursing in many countries is now lives a terrible lack of specialized professionals in nursing, so that currently develop their work imposed endless work shifts that subjected them to high degrees of stress and professional exhaustion. Likewise, many times is entrusted to newly incorporated nurses and without the proper training and experience tasks that clearly exceed his training, thus subjecting them to situations that could seriously endangering their patients. Kevin P. Campbell, PhD insists that this is the case.

Another important factor in promoting the medical negligence in this area takes place at the time of the transfer and exchange of information and instructions from a few professionals and others, and can thereby cause serious damage in patients, for example to manage a particular medication to a patient who needs another. The most frequent cases of negligence committed by nurses among the most common in the practice of nursing mistakes and that could give rise to compensable medical negligence cases are the following:-do not monitor properly the patient when necessary, with the consequent risk of not warn possible changes in your situation or any moments of crisis. -Not properly follow the instructions laid down by optional physician which is attended. -Develop procedures for those who are not properly trained. -Supply drugs or Sera wrong or a wrong dose to the patient.

As result thereof may result in serious harm to the health of patients: injury in internal organs, heart failure, poisoning, respiratory or kidney insufficiencies, and in the worst cases, even his death. Happened recently when a nurse without the proper experience supply by mistake a serum to a newborn, taking place as a result his tragic death. Clearly in this case it could talk about medical malpractice. In any case this professional was trained to perform that kind of extremely delicate tasks, given that had just been incorporated and did not have the sufficient preparation. Nurses, in all times, have the duty to comply with its obligations with the utmost diligence possible. Any departure from these levels of professionalism could determine their responsibility for a medical malpractice case, being possible from hence bring a claim for damages arising from the same.
