Nursing Home Negligence
As family members reach an advanced age, it may be difficult for their children and grandchildren to provide the type of medical care and support that they require. In some cases, an assisted-living facility or nursing home can provide the round-the-clock medical assistance and support that the individual requires. Unfortunately, if the facility does not provide responsible care, the individual may suffer serious injuries as a result.
It is the responsibility of nursing home administrators and staff members to provide compassionate and responsible treatment for patients in their care. If your loved one has suffered injury as a result of negligent or reckless treatment while in a nursing home, contact the Wausau personal injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 today.
Causes of Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing home negligence is often caused by:
- Failure to provide adequate training for staff members
- Lack of proper background screening for new employees
- Inadequate staffing for the facility
- Poor shift-assignments and over-working of employees
- Inadequate cleaning and sanitization of nursing home surfaces
- Failure to provide the services advertised
While most people understand that physical or mental abuse may be considered common forms of nursing home negligence, many do not realize that mismanagement of funds can be a kind of negligence as well. If the facility fails to provide the services advertised, or if funds are inappropriately allocated, the establishment may be found liable for negligence.
