Nursing home negligence may be conduct or policy-related

On Behalf of | Jan 4, 2019 | nursing home negligence

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.

Sadly, it happens in this state and across the country. Workers fail to carry out their duties according to accepted safety standards or facility policies may be in need of reform because they place patients at risk. In either situation, if your loved one suffers from medical neglect, you may have grounds for filing a personal injury claim in a civil court.

When reporting an incident of neglect, it is critical to document as many details as possible. You’ll also want to gather as much evidence as you can, as you will be tasked with proving to the court that negligence took place and that it directly caused your family member to suffer harm. An experienced personal injury attorney can be a great asset to have on hand to help build a strong case.

There are no acceptable reasons for substandard care. Nursing home negligence is preventable and even one incident is one too many.
