Nurses play a critical role in triage, communicating information to physicians, administering medication and monitoring patients' conditions. When a nurse fails to perform his or her duties to the level required by their profession, patients can be harmed or even killed. Nursing errors often include:
- Failure to contact a doctor in a timely manner
- Misdiagnosis of the symptoms of a serious medical condition

- Administration of incorrect medication or dosage
- Improper maintenance of a patient's chart
- Failure to monitor vital signs
