Nursing Home Negligence

Admitting an aging parent or family member to a long-term care facility is an incredibly difficult decision to make.  In doing so, we trust that the staff and service workers will treat our loved ones with the respect and care that we would provide, to ensure that this stage of their life is comfortable and positive. Unfortunately, in some situations there may be nursing home negligence, these can include:

  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Failure to develop a fall prevention plan
  • Failure to prevent bedsores (decubitus ulcers)
  • Failure to prevent wandering and elopement
  • Improper supervision and failure to monitor residents
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Medication and prescription errors
  • Failure to refer residents for medical treatment
  • Physical assault
  • Sexual assault

If a member of your family has suffered as a result of nursing home negligence, our firm may be able to help you recover financial compensation and care for your loved ones. At McLeish Orlando, our work in the area of nursing home negligence began with clients who had suffered injuries prior to receiving treatment in nursing homes and other kinds of care facilities. From this extensive experience we have an understanding of the kinds of acts which constitute negligence, and the impact a lack of compassion, training or caution in nursing homes can have on those residents subject to their care. Through assisting you and your loved ones, we can not only aid you and your family through this difficult situation, but as well we can hold responsible parties liable, to prevent further cases of nursing home neglect.
