Admitting an aging parent or family member to a long-term care facility is an incredibly difficult decision to make. Most often, we do not have the time or expertise to care for our loved ones, which is the catalyst for making this tough choice. In doing so, you are placing your trust that the staff and service workers will treat our loved ones with the respect and care that we would provide, to ensure that this stage of their life is comfortable and positive.
Sadly there are numerous incidents of nursing home negligence that result in serious injuries and, sometimes, wrongful death. Residents have the right to expect quality care and supervision, and a caring environment in their nursing home or long-term care facility. Nursing home negligence, can include a wide array of negligence on behalf of the nursing home or it’s staff. Some examples of this are failures to follow or develop a fall prevention plan, failure to prevent bedsores (decubitus ulcers), failure to prevent wandering and elopement which can lead to injury, Improper supervision and failure to monitor residents, medication and prescription errors, failure to obtain timely treatment for residents, assault and other omission.
