Nursing Home Abuse: Negligence and Wrongful Death
Putting your loved ones care in the hands of another can be a tough decision to make. You are hoping that your loved one is treated fairly, with dignity and respect. Their personal care and safety is entirely dependent on the care they receive from the nursing home or assisted living facility. Negligence of your loved one can be hard to spot. Many times, the facility puts on a good show when you are visiting, but it is an entirely different story after you leave.
Statistically, one in three elderly residents will be subjected to the negligence of a nursing home or assisted living facility. Unfortunately, that negligence can lead to death and those responsible need to be held accountable. An unexplained death of a resident in a nursing home or assisted living facility may be a sign of elder abuse and neglect and the family of the victim may be eligible for compensation for medical expenses, pain, and suffering.
Wrongful death can occur from:
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Bed sores that become seriously infected
- Prescription errors
- Severe physical abuse
