When A Nursing Home Fails To Provide Proper Care
Sometimes it becomes necessary for a family member to live temporarily or permanently in a nursing home. Our expectation is that our family member will receive the care and supervision they need. Unfortunately, sometimes our loved ones suffer serious injuries or die due to neglect. While there are certainly many excellent care facilities around, the unfortunate truth is there are also many where the care and treatment is not only subpar but sometimes deplorable.
If your family member suffered significant injuries because a nursing home and its staff failed to provide adequate care, it is important that you retain a personal injury attorney who has experience taking on these types of cases. Here are just a few examples of the injuries that can happen from substandard care:
- Bed sores
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Wandering away from the facility
- Medication errors
- Abuse by a staff member or resident
