Aging is inevitable, but oftentimes the hardest part of aging is watching your loved ones age. Have you had to make the difficult decision of placing a loved one in a nursing home? If so, chances are you did your homework to ensure your loved ones were properly taken care of. Chances are you took every step imaginable from researching numerous nursing homes to visiting numerous nursing homes.
Unfortunately, despite your best efforts, you are now facing a more difficult situation; your loved one is facing negligent care and/or mistreatment at the nursing home you selected. Certainly you didn’t intend to put your loved one in that situation and certainly you trusted the nursing home enough to place your loved one in their care.
Negligence is the most common theory of recovery for nursing home abuse. Negligence requires an affirmative duty and a breach of that duty with resulting damages. Nursing homes have a legal duty to provide quality health care and it is not your expectations alone they must adhere to. Nursing homes must follow and provide adequate care for the residents. A breach of that duty occurs when your loved one suffers injuries at the hands of someone employed at the nursing home. Damages result when your loved one incurs fees for medical treatment as well as nonmonetary damages such as pain and suffering.
