Nursing Home Malpractice

Nursing Home Malpractice

One of the most difficult decisions we ever make requires giving up the responsibility of caring for an elderly, vulnerable or chronically ailing loved one by turning them over to the permanent care of a long-term care facility or nursing home. We depend on the expertise and compassion of the employees of these facilities to provide the same kindness, consideration and tenderness that we would show if caring for them ourselves.

Unfortunately, this does not always happen.

Nursing homes, short-term and long-term care facilities and their employees are required to function under the same strict law and standards of care as any medical care provider. Any time someone sustains an injury, illness, or disease or dies because of a breach of the care facilities normal duty of care, a negligence claim can be made.

Nursing homes and care facilities have the burden of providing their residents with a safe environment. Their surroundings should be free from harmful opportunities. For example, residents should be kept safe from injuries from furniture, such as beds or wheel chairs. Facilities should be well maintained to prevent falls on floors, stairways, safety railings or elevators. And residents should definitely be free from injuries caused by an employee. A fellow resident or guest can lay the groundwork for bringing a claim for negligence.

If you believe that you or someone you love has been harmed because of the negligent skill and care of a nursing home, contact Paige Donnelly as soon as possible. We will promptly respond to your questions and are willing to visit you at the hospital, the nursing home, or in your home.
