Nursing Home Negligence
Often the most vulnerable and defenseless victims of negligence include our senior citizens who must rely on nursing homes to care for their basic needs.
The decision of which nursing home to place a loved one is an important decision that warrants research beforehand. You should check with New York State’s Department of Health regarding local facilities and their track records and ask your family doctor regarding reputation. You should also tour the facility more than once to observe conditions, staff and patients/residents as far as cleanliness, odors, patient care, attention and activities.
You should prepare questions ahead of time regarding such things as staff to patient ratio, licensing restrictions/problems, available medical care, activities, bathing areas, procedures and frequency, security measures and kitchen/food facilities and plans.
Family members must be advocates for proper care when a loved one is in a nursing home. If a loved one is hurt by abuse or negligence at a facility, we invite you to Contact Us to answer your questions and fight for justice on behalf of your loved one.
