Nursing Health and Safety Problems
The presence of nursing home neglect and negligence is a real problem in many nursing homes around the country. When caregivers entrust their precious loved ones to the care of nursing home facilities that offer a number of residential, medical and supportive services, the family members want to have assurance and peace of mind that their loved ones are being taken care of by the nursing home staff.
Many facilities have a number of advertised services and policies that state the things they provide for their patients. Unfortunately, there are sometimes shortcomings in these facilities that present health and safety problems that can or actual affect the patient’s health and well being. These problems include:
Some nursing homes do not have enough monitoring in place to protect the belongings of their patients. Patient property is sometimes compromised and their personal belongings are tampered with by staff and other residents.
Nursing homes do not always provide adequate medical care, including regular monitoring of patient medications, medical conditions and their accompanying symptoms.
Safe, nutritious meals are very important for the patient’s health and well being. Nursing home food is not always stored and preserved to patients in a sanitary environment. This can lead to sickness and possible health problems.
Nursing home facilities are not always as safe as they should be. There are sometimes cases of accident hazards that are not well secured as well as patient safety equipment that is not working properly.
If you believe your loved one’s health and well-being is in jeopardy at a nursing home, consult with an elder care lawyer today.
