legal nursing and issues

  please reply to discussion below and explain why agree or disagree to the post.

Nurse managers and the nurse administration have many legal liabilities when it comes down to an entire unit of nurses, including the issue of corporate liability. Corporate liability determines the extent to which a company or hospital as a legal entity is held accountable for its employees actions (Thornton, 2010). According to Guido, corporate liabilities in the nursing world can look like a nurse that fails to serve as a patient advocate, an incompetent or impaired physician is overlooked or even failing to provide a background check on a physician (Guido, 2020).
            To minimize and avoid corporate liability, nursing administration and nurse managers must actively avoid it. This can be achieved through education and maintaining scope of practice on the unit. Nurse managers must make sure all staff is practicing safe and competently, ensure all healthcare providers have the proper licensure, be aware of staffing issues and ratios, all while reporting unsafe practices of employees (Guido, 2020). Administration also needs to act to evade malpractice lawsuits under corporate liability. Malpractice lawsuits could be on the basis of negligent hiring, hiring incompetent employees, assigning inappropriate staffing ratios, failing to educate staff, and failing to warn others of potential problems with previously employed staff. The employers have a duty to educate, orient and evaluate all prospective and current employees. This never ends as long as youre in charge.
