Medical Malpractice in Nursing Homes
Residents of nursing homes have quite a few medical needs. Nursing home staff members have an obligation to provide a standard of care to their residents that meets those needs. Unfortunately, medical malpractice is one of the most common forms of negligence that our nursing home abuse lawyers see.
We expect nursing homes to take care of our loved ones in their hours of greatest need, but too many of them fail in this task. Our nursing home abuse lawyers have the experience to help if one of your loved one suffered as a result of medical malpractice in a nursing home.
Some common forms of nursing home medical malpractice include:
- Medication errors
- Improperly trained staff
- A lack of attention to residents’ basic medical needs
- No doctors or trained personnel on site
Whatever the specific cause of the malpractice, the results can be devastating. In particularly tragic cases nursing home residents have died as a result of medical malpractice.
Our nursing home abuse lawyers can answer any questions about nursing home abuse you might have and explain the entire legal process to you at a free initial consultation.
If your loved one has suffered as a result of medical malpractice, our nursing home abuse lawyers can help. Please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
