Michigan Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys Discuss Facility Closing Due To Resident Abuse

In recent news, nursing home residents brought allegations of abuse by staff members against a Toledo, Ohio nursing home.  The abuse allegations led to the nursing home losing its Medicare and Medicaid provider agreements, forcing the facility to close.  Residents claimed that the employees failed to prevent the abuse and respond to the safety of their residents, by allowing abuse by other staff members to go unreported.

Unfortunately, this case is just another example of how common nursing home abuse and neglect happens throughout nursing home and assisted living facilities. Nursing home neglect and abuse is often attributed to inexperienced or under qualified staff working in nursing homes. Nursing homes are responsible for providing a safe environment for their elderly residents. This includes protecting them from being abused or neglected.

Nursing home residents and their families should be aware of the different types of nursing home neglect and abuse. The different types of abuse and neglect include mental abuse, physical abuse, neglect and even financial abuse of residents.

Our Michigan nursing home abuse attorneys pursue cases for many different causes of nursing home abuse and neglect. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Pressure sores, bed sores, decubitus ulcers
  • Infections, including gangrene
  • Unexplained falls resulting in broken bones
  • Medication errors and mistakes
  • Sepsis, dehydration, and infections
  • Wandering and elopement from the facility
  •  Death

Patients and their families can file civil claims seeking money compensation for the injuries suffered due to nursing home neglect and abuse.
