The number of nursing home residents in Oklahoma, as in the rest of the United States, continues to rise. This demand has led some nursing home operators to overlook the health and safety of the residents in their pursuit of profit. Not every case of nursing home negligence involves a medical professional. A staff member or even another resident may cause harm to your loved one. Specific guidelines established by state law are in place to maintain a healthy environment for nursing home residents.
Examples of nursing home negligence
Common examples of nursing home negligence we have seen involve one or more of the following factors:
- Inadequate levels of staffing to maintain patient supervision
- Failure to assist residents who are non-ambulatory (cannot walk on their own)
- Malnutrition or dehydration due to poor nutritional supervision
- Prescription drug errors in which a patient is not given medication they need, or in which the patient is given another patient’s medication
Your loved one may exhibit signs of negligence. They include:
- Loss of weight
- Bed sores
- Unexplained injuries
- A sudden change in personality
Sometimes nursing home negligence may lead to the death of your loved one. You may need to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. We can help you with your legal options.
