When you reach what is likely a difficult decision to live in a nursing home, you’re trusting almost every aspect of your life to others. All of them are strangers when you first arrive at the nursing home, but they are still responsible for helping you perform everyday tasks and ensuring that you get the medical care you need.
If a nursing home and its staff either willingly or unknowingly provide incorrect medical care or are inattentive to the needs of the elder adults living there, they are liable for costs of any injuries that result. An Arbutus nursing home medical mismanagement attorney with Brown & Barron can talk with you about your situation during a free consultation.

Negligence Is a Common Form of Elder Abuse in Nursing Homes
Nursing home negligence is a form of elder abuse in which staff members are mistreating the residents in their care by deliberately harming them (abuse) or failing to give them the care and attention they need (neglect). This includes accidentally giving incorrect medication or wrong doses. Leaving the elderly in nursing homes unattended for too long, can lead to various outcomes of physical injury or death due to abuse and neglect.
Many nursing home residents cannot perform basic tasks required to keep themselves healthy and give themselves a good quality of life. That’s likely the very reason they are in a nursing home. So, when the staff isn’t regularly feeding them, helping them in going to the bathroom if needed, changing their clothes, and assisting them in moving around to prevent bedsores, that is negligence.
Recovering Damages for Medical Malpractice
The exact amount of money that we could recover will depend on your case’s circumstances. If there was a physical injury, the cost of medical treatment would be something our firm would help you recover.
Many settlements exceed the total financial cost of the injury or death (called the economic costs), with additional compensation coming from pain and suffering that our clients endured (non-economic costs).
We will review your losses and advise you on the compensation you could recover.
