Experienced Brandon Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
Nursing homes and assisted living facilities have a legal obligation to take care of your loved one with the same quality of care that everyone expects from their local hospital. Once they violate this standard of care they must be held accountable for the sake of your loved one and all others who might choose their facility for long term care. Carman, Bevington & Finegan, has experience seeking justice on behalf of our clients against healthcare facilities that have harmed their loved ones. Whether your family member is still alive, or has died due to elder care negligence, we can help.
Under the Florida Patient Bill of Rights, nursing homes and most types of assisted living facilities have a set of specific statutory responsibilities toward their patients. They also have basic duties of care under traditional personal injury and negligence law.
The consequences of elder abuse and neglect by nursing homes and assisted living facilities can lead to irreversible harm. Don’t let the abuse to continue, call our trial attorneys immediately if your loved one has experienced any of the following:
- Bed sores: When nursing home staff fails to move patients regularly, they can develop bed sores, which can lead to serious and sometimes fatal infections if they are not treated promptly.
- Failure of emergency response systems: If a nursing home offers emergency response services, its staff need to respond quickly to pull cords and call buttons.
- Failure to restrain or secure patients: When patients are unable to move about safely, they need to be provided with adequate restraints to prevent serious injuries.
- Inadequate nutrition: Nursing homes are responsible not only for providing nutrition but also, in some cases, for making sure patients actually eat and drink enough.
