Nursing Home Injury
Injuries among the elderly are common. Elderly loved ones aren’t as agile as they once were. For families with elderly parents, injuries are a regular concern. It’s one reason many families turn to nursing care for their elderly loved ones. The promise of safe, round-the-clock care is what most families need.
Sometimes, families learn too late that their loved one isn’t getting the care that was promised.
Care After An Injury
Long term care facilities have staff available 24/7. They should be able to provide better care than most people with older family members. Plus, the staff has medical training. Care after any injury is important, and most people trust their loved one is getting the care they need. But, neglect can make any injury worse.
Legal Case Against LPN
In the case of H.R. McMaster Sr., nursing home staff did not follow procedures. Mr. McMaster hit his head in a fall at a nursing home. He was discovered with a head injury and the staff had a nurse check on him.
The nurse filled out her paperwork about the incident. Her paperwork described that she checked Mr. McMaster repeatedly according to procedures. But, video evidence discovered by the family’s attorney shows the nurse did not check on Mr. McMaster at all. Mr. McMaster died hours after his fall because no one actually checked him.
When To Call An Attorney
Nursing home injury can lead to serious problems. Our elderly loved ones deserve better! When an injury gets worse because of neglect, you should talk to a lawyer. If your loved one died because of neglect in a nursing home, speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. Sometimes, even the cause of an injury is enough for a successful lawsuit.
Having the right lawyer makes a big difference in the success or failure of a case. Protect your rights and the rights of your loved one. A lawsuit can force the negligent nursing home to change in ways that protect other residents.
