Protecting Victims Of Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
We place our loved ones in the care of nursing facilities to ensure they are safe and cared for. Ohio law requires nursing homes to provide a safe environment for their residents. Unfortunately, injuries occur frequently in these facilities. When this happens, the nursing home is legally responsible for the resident’s injury.
If you notice any of the following, your loved one may not be receiving proper care:
- Broken bones
- Medication errors
We investigate nursing homes to determine what happened and why the injury occurred. If you have questions about the care you or a loved in receiving, call us to discuss your legal options.
Why Do Nursing Home Injuries Happen?
Nursing home injuries happen for a variety of reasons. We have handled many nursing home cases and seen several points of failed care. Some of the most common causes of injury include:
- Poor staffing
- Lack of supervision
- Inadequate training
- Failure to provide adequate assistance
- Medication Errors
While it is not always possible to predict that a nursing home is unsafe, you should examine the cleanliness, number of staff working, staff-to-patient ratio, and the interaction of staff with the residents when visiting nursing homes. If you have questions about the care being provided to your loved one in a nursing home, please contact us to discuss your case.
