Nursing Home Wrongful Death
You Can Take Action After a Wrongful Death
When it is not possible for an elderly person to live alone or for the family to provide daily care, nursing homes may be the only option. Sadly, some nursing homes are more concerned with saving money than providing competent treatment. When a facility fails to provide an acceptable standard of care, nursing home patients may suffer injuries that lead to wrongful death.
We Will Uncover the Cause
Nursing home abuse is a deliberate violation of residents’ rights and safety. Nursing home neglect is the failure to provide basic services at an acceptable standard of care. Either abuse or neglect can result in the wrongful death of a resident.
Some of the most frequent causes of nursing home wrongful death include:
- Inadequate staffing
- Lack of supervision
- Physical abuse
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Medication errors
- Wandering off and elopement
- Failure to monitor
- Staph infections
- Physician and nurse negligence
- Failure to follow care plans
We will determine liability in your wrongful death case. Whether the facility, an individual staff member or a third party was at fault, we will hold that party responsible for its actions.
