Placing your loved one in a nursing home is a decision that is not made lightly. You know that it is in their best interest to have round-the-clock supervision and care available, and you know that you aren’t able to provide the level of attention and clinical expertise that they need, but you also worry that the home won’t provide the kind of care that you would. So when your loved one has been injured and it is a result of negligence or abuse on the part of a staff member or the administration, you have the right to be upset and even outraged. When the nursing home accepted responsibility for your loved one they obligated themselves to provide a reasonable amount of care, and they failed. At Perkins Injury Lawyers, our Bridgeport nursing home attorneys understand your concerns and we know what needs to be done. For immediate help, contact us immediately.
When an infirm person is placed into the care of a nursing home, they are often extremely vulnerable. They are frequently frail and unable to communicate, and being in a strange new place only adds to their confusion and their reliance upon the people who are there to provide their services. Nursing homes are expect to provide basic services, including dispensing the correct medications, ensuring that the residents in their care are safe, seeing to their basic hygiene needs and providing medical attention when needed. Failure in any of these services can lead to injury and constitutes negligence, yet it frequently happens as a result of overstaffing, lack of training, and general lack of interest or empathy on the part of staff members. Some even go so far as to intentionally inflict harm on residents out of frustration or malice. If you suspect that this is what has happened to your loved one then you need a strong and passionate advocate on your side.
