TYPES OF ABUSE & NEGLECT

Do Not Tolerate Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect can result in a variety of injuries and potentially fatal medical conditions. Bedsores are not a minor skin irritation- as they can cause lasting injury and even death. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has defined pressure ulcers (bed sores) as “never events” – errors in medical care that are identifiable, preventable and serious in their consequences for patients. The occurrence of never events indicates there is a problem in the safety and credibility of a healthcare facility. Additionally, dehydration and malnutrition do not just happen without someone acting negligently. Call now and speak with an attorney.
