Possible Legal Risks a Nurse Might Encounter

Possible Legal Risks a Nurse Might Encounter

Stephanie Larkin / Articlesbase.com

Certification and Licensing

A nurse that does not have current certification and licensing may become involved in legal entanglements, particularly if any other activities attract the attention of the authorities. Practicing medicine without being properly trained can be dangerous for the patient, but can result in huge fines and even prison time for the person who is found guilty of such acts.

These examples represent occasions when a nurse may be involved in activities that cause risk legally either to the nurse or the other medical staff in the facility. Different types of nursing situations may be more prone to risk than others. For example, a hospital setting may be more likely to have certain types of legal risks. Home health care may display another type of risk, while nursing home care may represent another entire group of risk factors.
