Nurse expert witnesses are often needed for litigation matters.
While nurses provide important health services, error or problems resulting from negligence in nursing can lead to potential court cases.
Nursing expert witnesses would be called upon in such situations to provide an expert opinion on the matter in question.
There are different types of registered nurses, as each serves a specific purpose in meeting the particular needs of each patient.
One area of nursing, for instance, is perinatal nursing, which involves caring for patients approaching childbirth.
This particular clinical nurse specialist works with labor and delivery, fetal monitoring, and maternal-child health, in addition to other related forms of care.
Other nursing expert witnesses may have worked in critical care nursing, which involves emergency management, medical record analysis, ambulatory care, and surgical nursing.
Nursing education must properly train each registered nurse before working within the field, which also requires nursing supervision, as any error or lapse in judgment can lead to serious health issues, as well as potential lawsuits.
Rehabilitation nursing expert witnesses are skilled with the care and treatment required for patients after an injury or illness, as well as after surgical procedures and the process of physical or mental therapy.
In any health services setting, nurse practitioners must be responsible for nurse liability in the event of an unforeseen issue related to treatment.
