Nursing Home Negligence

The decision to place a loved one in a nursing care facility is always a difficult one, but is made easier by knowing that your family member will be received skilled, 24/7 care that will allow them to thrive. Unfortunately, these facilities do not always live up to these goals and cases of nursing home negligence and malpractice are becoming far too common.

When a nursing home doctor or nurse makes a mistake, it can lead to serious injury or wrongful death.

How Do Mistakes Happen in Nursing Homes?

Nursing home negligence can come in many forms, but our attorneys regularly see cases in which there are allegations of:

  • Falls caused by insufficient fall prevention procedures
  • Painful bed sores that can lead to serious infections
  • Failure of a facility to properly monitor patients weight and nutritional intake
  • Abuse by caretakers
  • UTIs and other infections that aren’t addressed by the facility in a timely manner

All of these issues can lead to serious injury or even death. If you or a family member have suffered because a nursing facility failed to do its job, call us today for a free consultation.
