Malpractice to some has been viewed as a negative topic in nursing practice. However, it actually allows for positive influences to effect nursing practice. With the ongoing threat of lawsuits, it allows nurses to be better educated and learn from what not to do in their practice. It allows supervisors, and any other healthcare team member, to become more involved in the practice. Overall, it allows for the continuance of the safest care possible to patients.
