Louisville Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorney
The fast pace and busy lifestyles of today sometimes make it difficult to care for our elderly and disabled loved ones. When our parents or family members can no longer care for themselves, we sometimes have to entrust their care to others, such as home care workers or nursing homes. But what happens when the people who are supposed to care for our loved ones neglect or even abuse them?
Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse What is it all about?
Nursing home malpractice refers to the negligence or careless behavior of any staff in the performance of their duties including failure to ensure adequate patient supervision, failure to accommodate the urgent needs of a resident and so on.
Nursing home litigation occurs when there is an allegation of neglect, abuse or malpractice relating to the basic care of residents who are placed in nursing homes. The purpose of such litigation is to seek compensation for any abuse, losses, sufferings or neglect on the part of a care giving facility and its personnel.
