Get help if your loved one was hurt in a nursing home

As someone who has an aging parent, the thing that frightens you is that they will be mistreated or harmed while in the care of those who are meant to protect them. From being left without meals due to an oversight to being overmedicated to make them stay quiet, there are dozens of ways that nursing homes and their staff members can violate patients' rights and potentially cause harm to them.

Of course, most medical professionals feel the way you do. They don't want to harm your loved one and are there to help. Still, oversights, negligence and other issues can arise that put your loved one at risk.

What should you do if your loved one gets hurt in a nursing home?

One of the things you should do right away is to find out why the incident happened. For example, if your parent falls getting out of bed despite having pressed a call button, you should ask how long the call went without being answered. You should find out if there are long lengths of time that your loved one is going without support. If so, the nursing home or its staff members may be at fault for your parent's fall.

You should also discuss the incident with any witnesses, the staff and the nursing home director. Make it clear that you want to know what happened and why. You can contact your attorney with documentation about the incident as well so that you can begin building a nursing home abuse case to help your loved one seek compensation and better care.
