Nursing Home Neglect

Thanks to modern medicine, people are living longer today than ever before. The decision to place a loved one into a nursing home facility is never an easy one, but whether it is a financial decision or otherwise, you have every right to expect that the care your loved one receives is in accordance with industry standards and the law.

 

Unfortunately, not all nursing home facilities and their staffs live up to this high standard. Every single day, more and more horror stories are reported throughout the nation, which involve nursing home neglect or even criminal acts against residents. Nursing home neglect can include failing to properly secure a patient who is a known fall-risk, allowing a patient to form bed sores, hygiene issues, starvation, dehydration, physical abuse, sexual abuse and robbery.

 

Those placed in nursing home care may have difficulty communicating with family members and friends regarding the neglect they face in their facilities. It is important that you regularly speak with nursing home supervisors and visually examine your loved one and his or her belongings, to ensure they are receiving proper care for their health and comfort.

When such care is not given, liability rests with the nursing home for the actions or inactions of its staff members, failing to supervise the staff and the negligent hiring of unqualified individuals or those who commit criminal acts against residents.
