Once you have made the decision to remove a loved one from a nursing home, developing a plan for a seamless relocation should begin. You should have discussed with the nursing home staff your concerns and thought thoroughly about your decision to move a loved one to a new residence or facility. If you have decided to remove a patient from a nursing home, securing the aid of a trusted Chicago nursing home injury lawyer can help address any pushback you may receive from the facility.
A plan can help to begin the transition from one location to the next. We recommend organizing information regarding:
Instances where a patient may consider leaving a nursing home include:
About one in ten seniors have experienced elder abuse. If a loved one has expressed that they have experienced neglect or abuse from a nursing home staff member, you should remove them immediately and contact a nursing home lawyer for representation.
A patient might be able to take care of themselves well enough without the aid of nursing home staff. If this is the case, then moving them to the home of a family member or a nursing home with an independent living option may better match the needs of a patient. Alternatively, if a patient will require more care–due to health, for example–moving to a facility that provides a higher level of service can better serve the needs of a loved one.
COVID-19 has hit nursing homes particularly hard; 23% of those in the United States who have died from the coronavirus are residents or staff of long-term care facilities. If you observe that the facility where a loved one is being cared for has experienced an increase in disease among patients, you may want to consider moving a loved one to another long-term care facility where they are less likely to get sick.
If you have experienced wrongdoing at a nursing home, an experienced elder care lawyer can help you develop a case against the facility. Our nursing home lawyers at Malman Law have helped many nursing home patients seek justice for wrongdoing. Set up a consultation today.
