Reasons for Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Some of the most common reasons that nursing home abuse and neglect occur are due to the nursing homes not having enough staff for the number of residents they have or they do not receive proper training. If there are too many residents and not enough staff then residents may not get the personal care they need for bathing, getting dressed, being positioned properly in bed, or taking medications on time. When this occurs, residents may fall trying to do these tasks on their own and this can lead to serious injuries for many elderly residents.
The other common reason for nursing home abuse and neglect is often not enough proper training. Nursing homes should have procedures in place to handle residents who are at an increased risk of falling or for those residents that need more supervision. However, if the staff are not properly trained, they may forget certain steps that need to be taken, they may be too rough or careless with a resident or they may leave residents alone too often. If you suspect that there has been nursing home abuse or neglect in one of these or another local nursing home, you should speak to one of our lawyers. We will listen to your case and help you to get any compensation that may be rightfully yours
If you are thinking about a Nashville nursing home for someone you care about, it is very important that you go to the home and check these out. Make sure you talk to the staff and ask any questions about the number of staff per floor, any training procedures they have in place, and what is done in the case of an injury or emergency. It is also a good idea to pay close attention to how the residents seem. Do they seem to be alone often? Do they seem to be in pain? Do they look clean and properly cared for? Once you have decided on a nursing home, you should visit often. This way you can check your loved one for any signs of abuse or neglect as well as make sure the staff are doing what needs to be done. If you feel that someone you care for may have been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you should speak to the nursing home right away about your concerns. If this does not work, you can speak to the Tennessee Department of Health about the issue. It is also recommended that you contact one of our nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers at the Higgins Firm. We will work on your behalf to get you the compensation you may be entitled to.
