Nursing home neglect: Fight back with a claim

Nursing home neglect is something that can happen right under your nose. From a loved one being neglected and not getting the nutrition or hydration they need to stay healthy to developing bedsores from not being able to move well, nursing home neglect can cause real injuries to patients.

As the loved one of someone who is in a nursing home, you can take steps to make sure they receive fair compensation if they are hurt in the nursing home's care. For example, if you know that your loved one was calling for assistance and fell because no one came for a half-hour or longer, you might be able to make a claim of negligence that would help them seek compensation and even move them to a better facility.

Why do some nursing homes have more accidents than others?

The primary cause of any accident in a nursing home comes down to how many nurses there are for the patients to rely on. When nurses are overwhelmed, they may be unable to help patients as often as they'd like. They have to respond to those in the worst conditions but that means that others could fall, get hurt or suffer as a result of neglect.

After a loved one is hurt in a nursing home, you have the opportunity to fight back and make sure they're fairly compensated for all they've been through. You may be the only one who can help them get the care they need, so it is important to talk to your attorney if you suspect abuse or neglect.

Representing Those Who Work

View Article “I like to react to what the witness is saying—not only what they’re saying, but how they’re saying it,” Hopkins says.
