Monroe Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse Attorney
It is not pleasant to consider nursing home neglect or abuse, but it is sometimes an unfortunate reality. Nursing homes are intended to provide the most vulnerable among us with the care and attention they need to live their fullest lives, and when they fail to do so due to oversight or by design, it is a dangerous situation that should be addressed head on. If your loved one has been harmed by either nursing home neglect or abuse, the matter is too serious not to consult with a dedicated Monroe nursing home neglect/abuse attorney.
Nursing homes, by design, are meant to provide their aging residents with the requirements set forth in their individualized care plans, which can include any combination of the following:
- Providing residents with necessary medical care, including the need for ongoing medical attention and medications
- Providing ample opportunities for social interaction
- Providing adequate nutrition and hydration
- Providing necessary assistance with personal hygiene
Nursing homes are often bustling enterprises, but when this interferes with their ability to provide adequate care, it amounts to negligence. Other factors that can contribute to negligence include:
- Overworked staff
- High employee turnover rates
- Poorly trained staff
- Lack of administrative organization and oversight
Nursing home abuse, on the other hand, involves causing intentional harm to a nursing home resident, which is exactly as dangerous and reprehensible as it sounds.
