Nursing Home Negligence
Making a decision to place a loved one in a nursing home is a difficult decision. As a spouse or child you expect your loved one will be treated with the utmost care and respect while living in the nursing home. It can be devastating to learn that your loved one has been left injured, disabled or left in a worse condition due to the negligence of the nursing home. If your loved one has suffered at the hand of someone else’s negligence, the attorneys at Friedland | Carmona can help your loved one recover any medical expenses, pain and suffering and scarring or disfigurement the nursing home’s negligence has caused them.
Nursing homes owe a high duty of care to their residents, and while many nursing homes provide excellent care and treatment, many nursing homes are owned by profit-oriented chains and in an effort tot save money neglect to give their residents necessary services. Nursing homes increase their profits by understaffing their facilities and therefore, the residents do not receive the amount or high degree of care they should receive. As the general population continues to grow, the population in nursing homes also continues to grow. For nursing homes that are fully staffed, many nurses and attendants are unqualified to care for your loved ones. Many nursing home residents are very vulnerable and it is likely that they will suffer from falls, broken bones and skin problems. Many residents suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other symptoms that may lead them to wander off or suffer a loss of memory. Because of these potential problems and illnesses, nursing home residents require the utmost attention and quality care in order to avoid injury and should only be looked after by qualified professionals.
