Nursing Assessment Liability

The legal issues are enormous surrounding health care provider all the time. It is necessary to avoid being sued for liability issues. The health care organization such as the hospitals should teach the health care professionals such as nurses who provide the nursing assessment some basics about law and why they have to become responsible for such situations and their actions. However, there must also be some legal protection for nurses as is for the patients. There should be similar education for the public, that they go to health care providers to be taken care of not to sue them, which is encouraged by advertisement on TV and radio about suing your health care provider. The public should also be aware that their action as a patient may have legal consequences. For example a DT person who become violent towards the nursing staff, when they come to the hospital for treatment should be treated as a nurse doing something wrong to the patient.
