Are you or a loved-one the victim of nursing home neglect?
Has your loved one received the attentive care they deserve?
Most nursing homes are owned and operated by corporations who make money for their stockholders. Unfortunately, this means they are not always looking out for the best interests of their residents.
Hiring aides and attendants with less than optimal skills, attitudes, or work ethic. The quality of medical care is also less than ideal.
Neglect in nursing homes can lead to serious injuries.
Nursing home neglect is a serious breach of ethical and professional conduct. Failing to properly care for these residents can result in them suffering serious injuries.
Common injuries that occur due to nursing home negligence.
Fall Injuries: Falls are the most common cause of injury to nursing home patients, accounting for over 75% of all nursing home injuries.
Pressure Sores/Decubitus Ulcers: Bedsores are most often seen in bedridden patients, where they experience pressure on an area which has a thin layer of skin and a bony prominence.
Wandering and Elopement: When a patient enters a nursing home, the home is required to create a “care plan.” The patient’s risk for wandering and elopement should be a substantial consideration within this care plan.
Over Medication and Medication Errors: Medication errors are too often the source of patient injury or death. This results from a combination of many factors, including the patient’s fragile health status, the need for multiple medications, and/or physician, pharmacist, or nursing error.
Undue Delay in Diagnosis or Treatment: There is no excuse for permitting a patient to experience extreme pain symptoms for days or weeks without significant medical intervention. For those who suffer permanent injury or death as a result of such neglect, there is help.
