Nursing Home Negligence: Disregarding Your Family’s Trust
When the elderly reach a state of adult dependency, they’re put in the safe hands of a nursing home for a reason.
If one of your loved ones lives in a nursing home and doesn’t seem capable of mobility, they might be advised to go into assisted living or acquire a full-time personal helper/nurse. If their management has suggested additional care and you’ve refused, they may be able to shirk the responsibility and your pursued injury claim. If they’ve had repeated accusations, and are among the 30% of all nursing homes proven negligent in courts, you may have a stronger case.
Having a relative or parent live in a nursing home is akin to having them enrolled in school. You expect reports from the nursing home administration about your loved one’s well-being, but if you don’t personally check in as an involved, concerned family member, you may lose credibility.
