Do I Have Grounds For A Nursing Home Negligence Claim?
Patients who have suffered nursing home neglect due to the following may have grounds for a claim:
- The medical professionals failed to regularly change the position of the immobile patient
- The medical professionals failed to regularly change adult diapers
- The patient was often left dehydrated
- The patient was not regularly fed
- The medical facility failed to provide a pressure relieving mattress, resulting in persistent pressure being placed on some part of the patient's body
In order to have grounds for a lawsuit, the injured patients must be able to prove that the medical professionals attending to them failed to perform the basic functions of their job. Furthermore, they must be able to prove that the medical professional's negligence was the cause of their injuries. Additionally, the patient must have suffered either economic or non-economic damages to have grounds for a lawsuit.
Have You Suffered From Bedsores?
Individuals who have suffered from bedsores are forced to face many hardships. Bedsores can cause patients immense pain and further illnesses. Bedsores can even prove fatal in some cases. Furthermore, bedsores can place an unnecessary financial burden on patients and their families. Treating bedsores can be costly, and the ensuing medical bills may not be covered by insurance. Many of the hardships placed on patients by bedsores could have been avoided had the attending medical professional acted in a responsible manner. As a result, patients who have suffered from bedsores may be able to recover compensation for any damages they suffered by filing a medical malpractice lawsuit with the assistance of our nursing home negligence lawyers.
