Case Scenario:

A well-qualified Medical Surgical Nurse Expert witness was retained on a case where the defending Medical-Surgical nurses failed to correctly assess, intervene, and abide by the standard of care for an acutely ill and immobile patient with a single pressure ulcer.

The defending Medical-Surgical team failed to involve a wound care nurse and therefore a proper care plan for the wound was not developed. This resulted in multiple pressure ulcers forming, increasing the risks, pain and discomfort the already suffering patient endured.

Med League’s Medical Surgical nurse expert witness, who specializes in all aspect of caring for patients who are acutely ill, immobile, have complication and comorbidities was retained to provide an independent review of the standards of care provided by the nursing staff.

IV therapy, complication or malpractice?Medical Surgical nurse expert witness are registered nurses who specialize caring for patients who are acutely ill, suffering from multiple issues, complications and/or comorbidities.

A Med-Surg Nurse’s patients also include post-surgical patients. The Med-Surg area of nursing is perhaps one of the most difficult due to the variety of patients and their varying degrees of care and needs.

A Meds-Surg nurse works in a variety of settings, though an acute care hospital is the most common workplace, they can also be found in inpatient clinics, health management organizations, outpatient/ambulatory care centers, nursing homes, out-patient surgical centers etc.
