Nursing Negligence Compensation Claims
Nursing negligence compensation claims are on the increase. Nurses provide a vital service to the NHS, and they are legally obliged to provide an acceptable standard of care. They must provide patients with caring, compassionate and skilled nursing care. If they do not, they may have been medically negligent.
There is increasing pressure on the NHS, and in turn, this pressure filters down to the nurses providing care. Often, nursing wards are understaffed and overworked. Unfortunately, when working under these conditions, nursing mistakes are made.
It is not acceptable for NHS patients to receive negligent nursing care. No matter what the pressures are on the NHS, there should always be enough suitably trained staff to provide care to the public. Nurses must provide consistently good care to patients, anything less of this is not acceptable.

What Is Nursing Negligence?
Nursing negligence compensation claims arise when patients receive negligent medical care from a nurse. When the standard of care provided by a nurse falls below acceptable requirements, it is negligent.
Nursing negligence can cause great pain and anguish to patients. Nurses often provide the day to day treatment that keeps patient safe and on the path to recovery. If they fail to provide this vital care and treatment, or provide it negligently patients can make nursing negligence compensation claims.
Nurse provide care in most areas of the NHS. Our solicitors have handled nursing negligence compensation claims relating to nursing negligence in:
- NHS Hospitals
- Medical Centres
- GP Surgeries
- Home Nursing
- Care Home Nursing
Wherever you may have received negligent nursing care, you can make nursing negligence compensation claims. The standard of care expected of nurses does not change depending on the location. So whether you have received sub-standard care at home, or in an accident and emergency department, you can make a nursing negligence compensation claim.
How Can Nurses Be Negligent?
Nurses provide a range of treatment and care to patients. They must be expert and skilled in these treatments to make sure they are provided with care and dignity. If nurses are not fully trained in each of the medical treatments they provide they can cause great pain to patients.
Some of the activities that are carried out by nurses in the NHS include:
- Check blood pressure of patients
- Check temperature of patients
- Check blood/oxygen levels and heart rate of patients
- Administering IV drugs and fluid
- Providing hygiene care for patients
- Administering drugs prescribed by doctors
- Keeping medical records
If a nurse provides any of the above care negligently, the outcome for patients can ultimately be fatal. They not only treat patients, but they provide a valuable checking system. This allows patients to be properly monitored. If patients are not monitored, symptoms and deterioration can be missed, leading to a much condition.
No two nursing negligence compensation claims are the same. However, our nursing negligence compensation claims solicitors have identified a range of areas that often involve nursing negligence. These are:
- Failure to provide vital food and water to patients
- Negligent administering of drugs
- Failure to monitor patients resulting in bed and pressure sores
- Negligent administering of needles
- Use of excessive force on patients
- Failure to provide hygiene care to patients
