Aggressive Representation for Nursing Home Negligence Victims
Our firm handles a broad range of nursing home negligence and abuse claims, including those involving:
- Bed sores
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Falls and bruising
- Physical and verbal abuse
- Lack of cleanliness
- Poor hygiene
- Medication issues
- Improper use of restraints
While there are some negligence cases that result from nursing home employees who simply don't care about their residents, many are caused by poor staff communication, short staffing or incompetence. Whether a failure of staff communication leads to inaccurate charts or to a resident being left in the same position for days, this behavior should not be tolerated and people need to be taken to task for their negligence.
There Is No Excuse for It
Whether your loved one has developed an illness, suffered an injury or died from a condition that should have been treated, there is no excuse for negligence. When nursing homes and long-term care facilities pay attention to their patients these things don't happen.
