Was nursing home negligence cause of ventilator-related deaths?

When the same type of injury keeps happening at a particular nursing facility, it is definitely cause for concern. Wyoming investigators are often called in to determine whether such situations may have been caused by nursing home negligence. In fact, the department of health in another state says it believes several ventilator-related deaths were preventable and were caused by staff members' neglect.

Facility in another state, cited for nursing home negligence

If an adult child suspects that his or her parent is not being properly taken care of in a Wyoming nursing home, it's possible to further investigate the matter and tap into legal resources available, as needed, to rectify the situation. Sadly, many incidents occur in this state and others where such situations are discovered only after it is too late. A man in another state, for instance, is grieving the loss of his father, who reportedly passed away from a sepsis infection that may have been caused by nursing home negligence.

Nursing home negligence may be conduct or policy-related

If your loved one resides in a Wyoming convalescent home or nursing facility, you likely worry from time to time about quality care issues. It's only natural that you want your family member to receive the best care possible so as to enjoy the highest quality of life he or she can in spite of any physical or mental conditions that might be present. Your loved one should not have to worry about suffering injuries because of nursing home negligence.
