The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home or other care facility is a difficult one. Usually, spouses or families arrive at this decision after a great deal of research, and the realization that they cannot provide adequate care for their loved one at home. They are, therefore, placing a great deal of trust in the administrators, nurses and other care providers at the nursing home or assisted living facility they've selected.
It's devastating to have this trust betrayed by negligence, especially when a helpless nursing home resident suffers serious injury. Nursing home or assisted living negligence may involve medication errors; allowing patients to develop bedsores or dehydration; inappropriate or excessive use of physical restraints; falls and broken bones due to insufficient monitoring or assistance; and failure to attend to a patient's hygiene needs.
Even worse than negligence is when a trusted care provider deliberately abuses an elderly or frail patient. Unfortunately, physical, emotional, financial and even sexual abuse of elders is not uncommon. Huegli Fraser PC is committed to helping families of patients who have been injured by nursing home negligence or deliberate abuse.
