This paper briefly reviewed literature relating to medical disputes and investigated the criminal judgments of the Supreme Court in Taiwan in cases involving nurses and the delivery of nursing services. Past studies of criminal judgments involving medical dispute have usually been presented in the form of case studies. By contrast, this study used a retrospective data, and analyzed the judgments by content analysis and the quantitative research design method. The original written verdicts were obtained from two major online law databases. There have been a total of 70 criminal judgments related to medical disputes since 1927. Among them, 7 cases involved nurses and the delivery of nursing services. These 7 cases were analysed, and the findings will be instructive to those interested in lawsuits related to medical disputes.
