Proving nurse negligence
Written By: Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP
It is difficult to imagine that the same people responsible to care for and help deliver our new babies can also cause them harm. In the case of birth injuries or death at the hands of a nurse, the confusion and frustration we feel can be as powerful as the pain and loss. We depend on our doctors and nurses to deliver top-notch care to our infants. Just as a doctor can be held responsible for malpractice, nurses can as well.
