Death in Nursing Homes
Many elderly people and their immediate families rely
on nursing homes to provide high-quality and around clock care. While
some elderly people may die in a nursing home, their families never
expect that the nursing home could be directly responsible. Unfortunately,
sometimes nursing home is responsible for the death.
• Abuse or injure residents
Families affected by nursing home wrongful death have
legal options available. For example, they may be able to file a lawsuit
against the facility and its staff, awarding them with financial compensation
and helping them enact change. No amount of compensation can bring a
family member back, but it is very important to hold a nursing home
accountable for a wrongful death and the suffering their loved one endured.
A lawsuit will help to encourage the nursing home to enact changes so
other residents can stay safe.
A wrongful death lawsuit sends a message to the nursing
home and its employees: Things must change, and no other families should
suffer. All nursing homes must properly care for their residents including
implementing a plan for each resident to prevent falls.
