Nurses In Poor Health Make 71% More Medical Errors
Much research over the years has shown that the registered nursing population suffers from depression more than any other profession. New research indicates that these levels of depression directly correlate with patient medical errors, which may be considered Connecticut medical malpractice.
Fifty-four percent of nurses reported poor medical health. One-third had some degree of depression, anxiety, or stress. Researchers compared the health data to reported medical errors data and found that about half reported medical errors in the last five years. Nurses in poorer health had a 26-71% higher chance of reporting an error. Depression stood out as a major concern.
