Article 4, (1) Act of 15 July 2011 on the Professions of Nurse and Midwife specifies that the profession of a nurse encompasses providing health services. Point 6 specifies the kind and scope of attendance benefits, both for the patient and the care provider. It needs emphasizing that there is a statutory possibility of determining these benefits by nurses, understood as an opportunity to express a professional opinion related to specialized professional activities. This very study will both present and discuss an opinion that was created as a reference to the quoted article. The opinion is related to the scope, types and methods of performing nursing activities for the patient-plaintiff looking to receive a compensation from a healthcare entity. The document created during the process was used by the general court in the pending civil proceeding.
The description that was created took the form of an established standard of care. It defines the specificity, tasks and the amount of time that every nurse needs to spend caring for a patient who is bed-bound. The opinion was created to be used during court proceedings and can be applied to similar cases. This may establish it as a source of medical knowledge in case of recommended and desired scope care exercised by nurses, physiotherapists and paramedics.
