Nurse Sue was wondering why she was being called to the nursing administration office. She mentally went over the list of tasks she was already behind on, as she hurried to meet Terry, her boss. Terry had someone else in her office as Sue sat down. “Hi Sue, this is the lawyer from our corporate office. You remember Mr. F. who was in about a year ago? The family has filed a lawsuit related to the pressure injury care you provided to him. We will need a list of the wound care classes you have taken before you are expected to give a deposition next week.”
The panic set in very fast for this actual nurse. What went wrong with this all-too-real scenario? What is the facility’s responsibility? What should Sue do? Is Sue the only team member who should be pursued? You will be able to answer these questions, practice more confidently and formulate strategies to protect yourself after spending one enlightening day with Ann Taylor MS, RN, CWOCN®, National Wound Expert and Legal Consultant.
