Navigating the Complexities of Medical Malpractice: Dedicated Attorneys for Nursing Home and Rehab Center Cases

Below are some examples of cases our nursing home and rehabilitation center attorneys have handled:

  • Falls, fractures, and traumatic brain injuries: Failure to provide proper assistance, monitoring, or implementing safety measures can result in residents falling and sustaining fractures, traumatic brain injuries, or other injuries. Sometimes patients fall and suffer an injury because nobody assists them when they need to use the bathroom, or because the call light or alarm on their bed is turned off so nursing home staff are not alerted to the fall risk.  It is crucial that nursing homes and rehabilitation centers properly assess the fall risk of their patients and have a plan in place to protect their patients from falling and suffering serious injury.
  • Delayed or improper medical treatment: If nursing home staff fail to recognize symptoms or respond to residents’ medical needs promptly, this can lead to delayed or improper treatment, exacerbate the resident’s condition and cause harm. For example, failure to diagnose bladder infections or symptoms of pneumonia can lead to serious injury or even death.
  • Medication errors: Administration of the incorrect medication or dosage can lead to adverse reactions or complications, injury or even death.
  • Pressure ulcers: Also known as bedsores or pressure sores, these injuries occur when residents remain in one position for extended periods without adequate repositioning or wound care. Failure by the nursing staff to regularly reposition the resident is a common error made in nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities.
  • Infections: The failure to promptly address the signs of infection in a timely manner can result in serious harm or death of the patient.
  • Malnutrition and dehydration: Failure to provide residents with proper nutrition and hydration can result in malnutrition, dehydration, and associated health complications or death..
