Nursing Home Malpractice
Many elderly patients in nursing homes suffer from abuse and neglect that goes undetected or unreported until serious consequences occur. Bed sores, bruises, falls, dehydration or extreme weight loss in the patient are often signs that there is some level of abuse or neglect at a facility. Failure to report or seek medical attention to any of these conditions may result in serious medical complications, lengthy hospital stays, or even wrongful death.
This form of neglect often results from efforts of the owner of the nursing home to increase profit by decreasing the number of health care provider. Necessary staff are eliminated without regard to the potential impact on quality of patient care, and the result is harm to an elderly patient.
Other types of nursing home negligence and abuse include using drugs as chemical restraints, delay or failure to seek medical attention in the the event of illness, physical and/or sexual abuse, decubitus ulcers (pressure sores) resulting from failing to protect skin from breakdown, fractures, head trauma or other serious injury from falls due to under-staffing.
