An estimated 2.1 million seniors a year experience some form of nursing home abuse or neglect. This number is astonishing, and something must be done to stop establishments from mistreating their patients. If you suspect you or a loved one is a victim, contact a Nursing Home Medical Malpractice Attorney. Those responsible must be put to justice to compensate those harmed, hold the guilty party accountable and prevent others from experiencing similar abuse.
Nursing Home Obligations
When you place a loved one in a nursing home, you do so with the best intentions. You are trusting the facility to care properly for your elderly relative. This care includes giving them proper medical attention. However, some facilities get greedy and neglect patients to cut costs. As a result, patients may become very ill or even die. It is unacceptable and illegal. A skilled Nursing Home Medical Malpractice Attorney will hold the guilty party accountable.
Common violations include:
- Mistakes in administering medications
- Lack of medical attention from doctors and nurses
- Ignoring medical problems
- Insufficiently trained staff
- Abusive staff
