It’s no secret that America’s population is aging. And that means that the nursing home industry is booming. Caring for elderly people requires a commitment to health, safety, and security. When those needs cannot be met, injury or mental abuse can be experienced by nursing home residents. If that happens, then nursing home employees could be liable for nursing home abuse.
Nursing home abuse is tragic. Oklahomans place their loved ones in nursing homes with the expectation that they will be cared for and looked after. Instead, the negligence of the nursing home and nursing home employees causes the health of patients to suffer. This can result in everything from serious physical injury to the development of mental conditions.
Here are just a few examples of nursing home abuse:
- Insufficient maintenance of nursing home premises
- Failure to provide adequate medical care or treatment to patients
- Understaffed nursing homes can lead to negligence of patients during certain times of day, or throughout the entire day
- Abuse, neglect, or mistreatment of a specific patient
- Over-capacity of the nursing home
- Creating dangerous, unsafe, or irresponsible conditions that cause personal injury or death in the nursing home
If you suspect that any of these conditions have caused a loved one to suffer, then it’s important to act immediately. Nursing home abuse is a serious problem that can have devastating consequences on victims and their families. The effects of nursing home abuse can have a permanent impact on the lives of the victim and everybody around the victim.
