We Will Protect Your Loved Ones Rights After Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing homes are both medical facilities and residential facilities for the people who live and are treated there. Management and staff have a legal obligation to provide an accepted standard of care. Therefore, nursing homes are responsible for caring for their residents and preventing injuries to them in a number of different ways. The most common causes of nursing home neglect injuries include:
- Nursing home medication errors
- Misdiagnosis of an illness, delayed treatment
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Injuries from falls
- Failure to supervise or restrain residents prone to wandering, elopement injuries
- Assault from other residents or staff, sexual assault
- Unsanitary conditions, bed sores and pressure ulcers
