Holding Negligent Nursing Homes Accountable
Putting a loved one in a nursing home is always very difficult. However, sometimes families simply do not have the time or resources to take care of an elderly family member in their own home. It is necessary to have a place where people can go when they have a long-term illness, and it is not uncommon for people to spend the last days of their life in a nursing home.
Neglect is one of the most common types of abuse in nursing homes. Long-term care facilities are often understaffed so employees will often not have enough time to do everything they are supposed to. Neglect can include Falls and Fractures, Bedsores, Infections, Aspiration Pneumonia, Impaction, Hypoglycemia, and other injuries. A few of the common type of nursing home injuries in Atlanta Nursing Homes include:
- Failing to turn and reposition residents so bedsores, also known as pressure sores, develop.
- Failing to provide reasonable supervision to prevent falls and serious injuries
- Failing to clean residents to avoid serious infections like Urinary Tract Infections and Sepsis
- Failing to timely report resident complaints to the doctor which can lead to avoidable complications like hypoglycemia, bowel ruptures from fecal impaction, and other conditions requiring surgery or leading to a resident’s death
