Some Accidents Are the Result of Negligence
The fact is, accidents can occur anywhere, including in a nursing home where there are supposed to be qualified nurses and staff members always on standby. Especially as patients get older and their health declines, it might not be possible to prevent every single accident. However, many accidents in a nursing homes are directly tied to negligence. Nursing home accidents can range from a patient falling because they’re not being supervised to being prescribed the wrong medication, not receiving enough care, and more.
Let Our Attorneys Determine Who’s At Fault
Determining who’s at fault when a nursing home accident occurs can be tricky. It’s the responsibility of nursing care staff to take care of their patients, from giving them medication, and proper nutrition, helping them with mobility needs, properly bathing them, and more. However, what happens when a nursing home is severely understaffed or is lacking in the necessary tools or equipment? Our team can determine who’s at fault and why.
