Nursing Home Negligence
One of the most troubling areas of personal injury litigation involves the mistreatment of the elderly and frail in a nursing home setting. When we entrust a nursing home to provide the type of care, concern and attention that we are unable to provide to a loved one, only to find out that they have been neglected, or worse yet even intentionally assaulted or abused, it shocks our senses. When this type of event occurs, you need the trusted assistance of the lawyers at Sutter & Ori.
Not only does Sutter & Ori continue to successfully resolve numerous cases on behalf of the neglected nursing home patient and their families, but we have also litigated similar cases on behalf of family members of our own attorneys. Therefore, Sutter & Ori’s compassion and knowledge that we bring to the courtroom is not only equipped with a full knowledge of the law, but it also carries the understanding of personal experience.
Nursing home negligence comes in many forms. Some of the most common abuses are those stemming from failure to provide proper nutrition or hydration, failure to properly turn a patient that results in decubitis ulcers or “bed sores,” and failure to properly transport or restrain a patient, which typically results in hip, leg or arm fracture. In other instances the facility may have negligently hired unqualified staff or may fail to properly train its nursing staff, which can result in medical treatment errors or even sexual and other physical abuse.
