Many families rely on various types of care facilities to provide much-needed, around-the-clock care for a loved one. These facilities may include nursing homes, personal care facilities, long term care facilities, or skilled nursing facilities. While these homes generally provide reasonable care, there are also far too many instances of neglect or even outright abuse.
A nursing home or other similar facility may be liable for negligence if, for example, there was a failure to properly monitor a resident; failure to provide proper nutrition; failure to turn or reposition residents to prevent bedsores or pressure ulcers; failure to develop a fall protection plan; or a failure to properly dispense medicine.
If you or someone you know was injured while in the care of a nursing home or other facility, you should contact an experienced lawyer who can answer your questions about what legal recourse you may have.
