What is nursing home and/or long-term care facility negligence?

Nursing home and/or long-term care facility negligence is a breach of duty or substandard care that results in harm to the resident.

When you make the difficult decision to entrust a loved one to a nursing home and/or long-term care facility, you have the right to expect that they will be properly cared for and treated with respect. Unfortunately, the abuse, neglect, or exploitation of residents of these types of institutions happens all too often when nursing homes sacrifice resident safety to increase profits by taking advantage of the vulnerable state of this population.

The types of Nursing Home and/or Long-Term Care Facility Negligence cases we handle include but are not limited to:

  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Ulcers, open wounds, or bed sores
  • Medical errors
  • Substandard care (inadequate supervision)
  • Slips and falls
  • Verbal, emotional, or psychological abuse
  • Dehydration, malnutrition, and weight loss
  • Burns
  • Death
