Nursing Home Negligence
For residents in a nursing home, receiving proper treatment and care is more than just an expectation, it is a right. Whether it is intentional or unintentional, nursing home negligence can lead to very serious health issues for you or your loved one. Nursing home negligence occurs when the professionals whose responsibility it is to care for their patients do not provide them with adequate or quality service. Health complications, injuries, and emotional damage can result from this kind of poor treatment. In the case of nursing home negligence, an experienced attorney can ensure that individual rights are protected and that those responsible for damages are held accountable.
When Does Nursing Home Negligence Occur?
Injuries commonly associated with nursing home negligence include bed sores, severe dehydration, malnutrition, and falls. Errors in distributing medication can also occur, putting patients in serious risk. It is also the responsibility of nursing home staff to be aware of any potential behaviors of patients that could put them in a danger, such as elopement, also known as “wandering.” If staff do not take these factors into consideration and act accordingly, this could constitute nursing home negligence.
