There are all manner of key tasks nurses perform at medical facilities. At all different stages of patient care at such facilities, nurses can play a critical role.

Now, given the very-present role nurses play in patient care, when allegations of negligence arise in connection to a particular patient outcome at a medical facility, nurses sometimes get caught up in the allegations.

Nurses can end up facing a variety of impactful and serious situations in connection to having allegations of negligence brought against them.

For one, they could end up facing lawsuits. When a nurse is named as a defendant in a medical malpractice lawsuit, what happens during the course of the case and what the case’s ultimate result is can have some very big impacts on the nurse and their reputation.

Also, some types of negligence allegations could lead to a nurse facing the possibility of nursing board actions. Disciplinary actions taken against a nurse by a nursing board can have major professional and livelihood implications for a nurse.
