If you have a loved one in a nursing home, here are five key questions you might want to ask:
- What testing is being performed on residents and staff?
- What education is being given to residents and staff to reduce the chance of transference?
- Has more frequent cleaning of the facility been authorized?
- What precautions are being taken with visitations from friends and family and other social events?
- If the virus is found at the facility, what happens next?
By asking these questions and staying informed about the risks, you may not be able to prevent coronavirus spread – but you could be empowered to seek out alternatives for your loved ones and even pursue legal action in cases of negligence. At Brown & Barron, LLC, our nursing home abuse lawyers are committed to helping victims of negligence and elder abuse at facilities across Maryland. If you come to believe that a lack of proper cleaning, staff training, or medical care has contributed to your loved one’s injuries in a nursing home, you may be eligible to file a claim.
