Failure to Monitor
Doctors and other medical providers have a duty to monitor their patients before, during, and after a medical procedure or during a hospitalization. Some patients require constant or consistent monitoring. The standard of care requires medical providers to keep tabs on the condition of patients in order to be aware of potential signs of trouble, and then to respond to any issues in a timely manner. If a doctor or nurse fails to appropriately monitor a patient, it can lead to serious injury or even death.
Some examples of failing to monitor patients occur in the context of failing to monitor vital signs, oxygen levels, medications, and even failing to monitor a baby during delivery. If a hospital discharges a patient too early and it leads to injury, it can be a basis for medical malpractice. Quite often, failing to monitor patients leads to traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or death. If you or your loved one have been injured due to inadequate monitoring, contact Zach Berry Injury Law for a free consultation.
