When a person receives medical care at a hospital, most of their interaction with the staff will often come between them and their nurses. These nurses provide many of the basic treatments, such as bandaging or administering drugs, in addition to taking care of patients on a personal level. However, as these nurses do play an important role in the patient’s treatment, a mistake from a nurse can have a profoundly dangerous impact on their patient’s health.
