Nursing Home Injuries

If you, or someone you know, has been the victim of nursing home abuse or been involved in an accident in a nursing home, it is important to act quickly.  Often times, nursing homes are inadequately staffed and the employees are poorly trained. This may lead to a very painful existence for residents, because they depend on the staff for the basic essentials of life, like food, water, medicine, toileting, grooming, stimulation, and turning.  If a nursing home fails to provide these basic treatments, care, goods or services necessary to preserve a resident's health, safety, or welfare, and the resident suffers injury, the facility may be at fault. The following are just a few examples of nursing home negligence:

  • Failure to assist in personal hygiene
  • Failure to provide food and/or water
  • Failure to prevent malnutrition or dehydration
  • Failure to provide safe, clean and decent living conditions
  • Failure to provide proper treatment for incontinent residents
  • Failure to provide assistive devices and appropriate supervision to prevent accidents
  • Failure to provide adequate medical care and prevent serious medication errors
  • Failure to prevent a resident from developing pressure sores; or caring for existing pressure sore on residents.

For these reasons and more, it is important to ensure that you, or a nursing home resident you care about, is receiving proper treatment.
