    How would you translate a special duty nurse into Spanish. Thanks.
    Here's the context.A special duty nurse is a nurse hired by the patient or the patient’s family to perform nursing care for the patient. An organization and its supervisors are generally not liable for the negligence of a special duty nurse unless a master-servant relationship can be determined to exist between the organization and the special duty nurse. If a master-servant relationship exists between the organization and the special duty nurse, the doctrine of respondent superior may be applied to impose liability on the organization for the nurse’s negligent conduct.

    I believe it's the same thing as a private duty nurse, which I believe is simply translated as "enferma particular."
