Nurses are increasingly taking over the clinical activities once carried out by doctors. In some areas it has now become difficult to distinguish the boundaries between nursing and medical health care. These changes raise important legal issues which will need to be considered by a court when dealing with clinical negligence cases involving the expanded role of the nurse.
