Holding negligent doctors responsible for fatal errors

When residents in Pennsylvania require medical attention sue to an injury, illness or a disease, the person had put a lot of trust in the health care professional caring for them.

In the United States there are six nurses for every medical doctor which means that nurses spend much more time with patients than doctors do.

Errors that occur because nurses are fatigued can be fatal for a patient.
