Care home & Nursing home Negligence
It is always a difficult decision to place a loved one into a care home or nursing home and in many instances, it is the absolute last resort. The choice of home is based on trust confidence and the belief that a good standard of care will be provided.
By law, all care homes and nursing homes have a duty of care to make sure that all residents are safe, comfortable and unharmed. While many care homes do provide a good standard of care, unfortunately it is not always the case.
Old age and ill health make residents in care homes and nursing homes vulnerable to mistreatment, resulting in injury and harm. Some examples of care home / nursing home negligence include:
- Incorrect administration of medication
- Insufficient support and monitoring of residents resulting in falls or other injuries
- Inadequate nutrition resulting in malnutrition and deterioration in health
- Development of pressure sores
- Failure to treat pressure sores appropriately
We act for a client who suffered horrendous treatment at a nursing home, both of the carers have been subsequently convicted of the treatment.
We acted for a severely brain damaged client who was subjected to racist abuse and ill treatment from his carers. We successfully recovered compensation for him and his family.
Another client was left unattended and fell resulting in a fractured hip.
Another client's carer's failed to follow the care plan, and use two carers for transport. As such our client fell out of her wheelchair, hit her head on the floor and developed a subdural haematoma from which she sadly died.
If you, or a loved one, has suffered harm as a result of receiving poor care, you may have cause to bring a claim for negligence against the home.
