Common Nursing Malpractice
Claims in Canada
Failure to Communicate
During a busy shift, you forget to inform the attending physician of a change in your patient’s vital signs, leading to a delay in treatment. As a result, the patient’s health worsens.
Failure to Monitor
After a patient complains of chest pain, you fail to take precaution and monitor the patient more frequently. A few hours later, the patient is nonresponsive, having suffered a heart attack.
Failure to Document
You become distracted when caring for a patient and forget to document the medication given. The nurse on the next shift also administers the patient’s medication, resulting in an overdose.
