Everyday malpractices occur. Due to deviation from standard of care and medical error, mistakes occur. Individuals die or suffer unnecessary damage. In some cases, it is the other way around and the healthcare professional or nurse did nothing wrong. Regardless, if the case has merit or not, healthcare professionals need to be aware of how to handle malpractice cases and how to limit them. Legal teams utilize the talent of nurses who specialize in malpractice case. Many times a Legal Nurse will investigate and see if the standard of care has been breached, or if the case has any merit. Legal Nurse Consultants can also serve as expert witnesses in cases.
