Call OnPoint to Prove Liability & Maximize Damages in Your Nursing Home Case
Nursing homes, skilled and assisted nursing facilities, home care agencies, group homes and hospitals, are all charged with caring for our most vulnerable population, older adults. Sadly, issues such as overcrowding and understaffing, lack of training and supervision, along with poor working conditions can lead to patient injuries and suffering due to neglect or abuse. Research clearly indicates that higher nurse staffing ratios improves quality of care and health related outcomes.
Poor outcomes in these types of cases include: pressure ulcers, falls, use of chemical and physical restraints, infections, pain, loss of independence, weight loss, dehydration, overuse of medications like antipsychotics and higher mortality rates.
