As individuals age, they might develop medical conditions that require specialized, round-the-clock care. Often, to get their elderly loved ones the treatment they need, family members may make the difficult decision to admit them to a nursing home, trusting caregivers on staff to provide needed medical attention. Unfortunately, not all homes provide proper care, which can place the individual’s health or life at risk.
If you suspect that your family member was injured because of nursing home staff negligence, contact Brown & Barron, LLC. Our compassionate attorneys will guide you through the process of initiating a claim against the responsible party.

Common Types of Medical Mismanagement
Nursing home residents may have different health conditions that require distinct types of care. Medical mismanagement occurs when nursing home staff, such as doctors, nurses, or other caregivers, fail to provide the standard level of care for residents with specific needs. When workers are negligent in their duties, the resident can suffer complications, which could result in injury or death.
Medical mismanagement can include:
- Prescription drug errors: failing to administer medication at appropriate times, failing to check for interactions that could cause serious problems, or failing to provide the correct medication
- Missed diagnosis: failing to accurately diagnose a condition, resulting in delayed or incorrect treatment
- Improper use of medical restraints: using sedatives to restrain a resident
- Lack of medical treatments: failing to have a nurse or doctor attend to a resident with injuries or health problems
