Nursing Home – Medical Neglect
Nursing Home Medical Neglect
You sent your loved ones to a nursing home in the hope that they would be able to maintain a high quality of life while receiving the medical support they need. While there are many things that nursing homes need to provide to their patients, medical care may be the most important. Many nursing homes provide good treatment to their patients, of course, but some do not.
When nursing homes neglect their patients’ medical needs, they put vulnerable elderly people at serious risk. In many cases, this type of negligence is illegal. If your loved one is being neglected in a nursing home facility, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Medical neglect can take many shapes, which can include:
- -Failure to provide prescribed medicine in a timely manner
- -Inaccurate or insufficient medicine
- -Failure to provide access to regular physical check-ups
- -Failure to provide access to a healthcare provider in the event of suspected injury or illness
- -Exposure to contagious illness from other patients at the facility
Your loved one deserves the best medical care possible. If you suspect that they are the victim of medical neglect in their nursing home, you should contact a lawyer. An experienced attorney can help you understand your options, which may include a financial settlement or other negotiations.
