Understaffed Nursing Homes
Nursing homes make a lot of promises in their glossy brochures. Every day, thousands of individuals across the Country trust nursing homes to provide a caring and safe place for our loved ones who are no longer able to live on their own.
Unfortunately, some facilities fail to live up to these promises.

Many injuries in nursing homes and assisted care facilities trace to issues such as inadequate screening of employees, understaffing, or inadequate training. The following are examples of nursing home injuries that should never happen in a facility that is adequately staffed:
- Sexual or Physical abuse
- Dehydration and/or malnutrition
- Medication errors, including over-medication, under-medication and giving residents the wrong medication
- Bed sores from failure to reposition an immobile patient
- Falls due to failure to assist residents
- Elopement (allowing resident to wander away from the facility)
When nursing homes are committed to proper staffing these injuries can be avoided. Nursing homes have a duty to protect the health and well-being of their residents. Our attorneys can help you protect your senior loved one from further harm and create accountability for the nursing home.
No matter how your loved one’s injury happened at a nursing home or other elder care facility, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
