Nursing Home Negligence and Malpractice

Nursing Home Abuse Statistics

According to the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) and the Center for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) report that no one knows how many older Americans are being abused neglected or exploited. There are nearly 17,000 nursing homes in the US that currently provide care for 1.6 million residents and the number is expected to quadruple to 6.6 million by 2050.

Nursing Home Negligence and Malpractice

Nursing Home Accidents are prevalent in personal injury law largely because they are preventable.  Injury cases and accidents in nursing homes include falling, burns, emotional and physical abuse, negligent care and reckless care and often they result from poor management.  Falls account for almost two-thirds of all large compensation claims in nursing homes across the United States.  The key to winning a case against a nursing home is to find sound legal counsel who can identify the culpability or “blame” on the nursing home and how the negligence, recklessness and/or intention of the management can be proven.

Elevated trust is placed in care providers when you entrust them with a loved one. You should contact us when there is a nursing home accident or you feel that this trust is breached; OurAdvocate will immediately begin to analyze the situation surrounding the accident.  Often to prove these cases it requires more than the investigation of the accident, but it also requires a thorough investigation of the nursing home.  The evidence must be preserved quickly!

  • Does the nursing home have a fall prevention program?
  • Does the nursing home identify the ‘at risk’ population for falls?
  • Does the nursing home have a risk management program?
  • What management system is in place for patients when they are ‘alone’?
  • Is the equipment maintained for safety?
  • Is the staff certified and competent at the level of care they are providing?
  • Does the management have a solid plan for emergency safety, such as fires and ambulance care?
  • Does the management practice safe disposal of biohazard and standard of care for daily hygiene routines?
  • Are the bathing facilities properly supervised and equipped for safety?
  • Is there a scrutiny of footwear for staff and patients?
  • Is there a medication assessment upon admittance with recurring, regular medication reassessments, with a physician or pharmacist as consultant?
  • Is medication administration safe, well documented and accounted for?

Special Cases Deserve Special Treatment

Nursing home abuse, nursing home negligence and nursing home neglect and malpractice are some of the most sensitive cases we handle. We at OurAdvocate recognize that you need to be treated with individual attention and compassion. We also understand we need to be aggressive and smart in pursuit of your claim. Our team uses an approach to determine who is liable and how best to pursue the claims.

Providers who may be liable include the professionals and care staff of nursing homes, hospices and elder living facilities, such as doctors, nurses and low-level care providers. Abuse and neglect claims include those where the patient has developed bedsores or has been inappropriately restrained. Injuries range from bedsores to broken bones to death.

We are experienced in the nuances of these cases, and understand the proof difficulties inherent in cases where the injured person may not be able to speak for him or herself.

If you suspect that a nursing home is neglecting or abusing your loved one, do not hesitate to call OurAdvocate. 1- 248 – 841 – 1060
