About Nursing Home Negligence

The general definition of nursing home negligence is the failure of a nursing home to provide adequate care to a patient or resident. This may include care in relation to medical treatment, hygiene, nutrition, and the patient's overall wellbeing. An elderly person typically enters a nursing home because he or she is no longer able to properly care for him or herself. When the nursing home staff does not provide the level of care that the elderly person deserves, this may lead to malnutrition, poor hygiene, physical injury, emotional trauma, and even death.

It is an unfortunate truth that not all Los Angeles nursing homes are committed to providing the level of care their residents deserve. Nursing home negligence is typically caused by understaffing, budget cuts, inexperienced staff or often a simple indifference to the wellbeing of the elderly people in the nursing home's care. These issues are often compounded by an elderly person's inability to care for him or herself, frailty or poor health, or inability or unwillingness to communicate what is occurring.

Consequences of Nursing Home Negligence

When nursing home negligence occurs, the results may be catastrophic. This is why it is important to consult a Los Angeles nursing home negligence lawyer as soon as you believe you have witnessed signs of abuse or neglect. If you do not address the matter as soon as possible, your elderly loved one may suffer serious physical injury or may even lose their life if abuse or malnutrition escalates. Your immediate action and an attorney's dedicated efforts may spare your loved one a great deal of pain and suffering, and can pave the way to prevent nursing home negligence in other facilities.
