Nursing Home Neglect

The Law Office of Bruce W. Slane, PC, is committed to holding nursing homes accountable for neglect.  Too often nursing homes neglect their responsibilities of providing proper care, causing their residents to suffer serious injuries and even death.  Common instances resulting from nursing home neglect include:

  • Bedsores
  • Falls and Fractures
  • Malnutrition and Dehydration
  • Medication Errors

Every nursing home resident has the right to receive adequate and appropriate medical care.  Nursing homes also have the responsibility to ensure that the medical care of each resident is supervised by a physician.  Providing proper medical care is a serious obligation for nursing home staff. Common instances of a nursing home’s failure to provide proper medical care include:

  • Failure to timely and properly notify the physician of changes in the resident’s condition
  • Failure to timely transfer the resident to a hospital or timely obtain emergency care
  • Failure to provide proper medical and/or nursing care

 

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing homes are responsibility for the safety of their residents.  Poor wages, under staffing, inadequate job screening and lack of supervision can create a dangerous environment in a nursing home.  As a result residents often suffer physical abuse, mental abuse and/or sexual abuse.  This abuse may come at the hands of a staff member, another resident or a visitor.

  • Physical Abuse of Nursing Home Residents
  • Mental or Emotional Abuse of Nursing Home Residents
  • Sexual Abuse of Nursing Home Residents
