What are some things to look for when selecting a nursing home?

The most vital considerations when seeking out the perfect nursing home include quality of care, treatment of residents and staff by administration, establishments that accommodate those with special needs, financial considerations, and location of the facility.

Wrongful death can be defined as a death that is linked directly to the fault of another person or group of people. Sadly, senior citizens in nursing homes die each year due to actions or lack of care from staff members. In many scenarios, many of these deaths could have been prevented if the nursing home had properly trained and an adequate number of caring staff members. Wrongful death in a nursing home can be the result of:

Serious and life-threatening infections
Lack of resident supervision
Neglect of resident's basic needs
Medication errors
Improperly trained staff
Poor operational oversight
Falls
Severe Bedsores

Elder Abuse FAQ

Q: What is a nursing home?

A:
Most individuals would describe a nursing home as a multiple bed establishment that assists elderly people who are unable to care for themselves on a 24 hour-a-day basis. Nursing home residents are usually immobile, have long-term conditions or diseases, in addition to mental health impairments. Most depend on specific medical treatment that is most efficiently administered in such a facility.

 

Q: Why is there such an increase in nursing home abuse?

A:
There are various explanations for the increase in nursing home abuse. Possibly the single most explanation for the increase in nursing home negligence and abusive care is a result of the increasing number of elderly individuals throughout the nation. Another reason is that people are living longer lives and staying in nursing homes for a longer amount of time. Many staff members are uninterested in taking care of senior citizens and not properly trained to do so, as well.

 

Q: Are there preventative measures to protect senior citizens from becoming victims of nursing home abuse?

A:
Yes. It is vital to monitor the nursing home closely and ensure that it follows all personalized medical treatment plans and care for your loved one. Ask him or her questions when you visit, and if he or she seems scared, contact one of our lawyers today.
