More and more older people need full time nursing care. Unfortunately, some nursing homes are understaffed and cannot provide the services they promise.
When basic needs are ignored and death or injury result, that is negligence. And negligent care in nursing homes or assisted living centers should never happen.
Many nursing home injuries are progressive in nature. They are conditions and injuries that trained nursing home staff should see coming. Many of these conditions come with early warning signs that should be recognized by alert nursing home personnel and then properly acted upon.
Examples of common progressive failures that are commonly the subject of nursing home malpractice cases include:
* Pressure Sores or Bed Sores
* Malnutrition and Dehydration
* Medication Errors
* Specific Incidents such as Falls, Physical Abuse and Burns
A Statute of Limitations restricts the time in which to file a lawsuit, so it is important to consult with an attorney skilled in the area of nursing home negligence. If someone you love receives a serious injury in a nursing home because they did not receive the care they deserve, we can help.
