Understanding patient abandonment for nurses

It has likely happened to every nurse at one time or another. A patient files a complaint against you claiming that you abandoned his or her care. This may have happened if you got detained with another patient and the condition of the first patient declined. Perhaps your shift ended and you forgot to pass the patient's care to another nurse. Maybe the care the patient needed was not part of your training or skills. However, are these examples of abandonment?

Avoid losing your law license over student loans

It's no secret that student loans are skyrocketing -- and defaulting on them can cripple your credit score. That makes it impossible to buy a house or get a car loan, among other things. Eventually, your tax return can be seized and your wages garnished to repay the debt.
