Dallas Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer

Negligence and a lack of attention could have greatly contributed to a nursing home injury.

Nursing home neglect is essentially the failure to act with the same prudence that a reasonable nursing home owner or operator would have acted under the same or similar set of circumstances.

Usually, nursing home negligence occurs when nursing home staff, such as direct care staff, nurses, nurse aides, therapists, dieticians, rehabilitation specialists, and others fail to monitor a resident’s condition, fail to appropriately assess a resident’s condition, or fails to report a significant change of condition to the resident’s physician.

We expect the nursing and direct care staff at the nursing home to be the eyes and ears of the doctor and to report any significant changes of condition so appropriate care can be initiated and provided in a timely manner. If they are clearly not doing this, you may want to speak with a Dallas nursing home neglect lawyer to discuss this very dangerous situation.

There are things you can do if you suspect your loved one is being neglected in a nursing home. Visit the nursing home more frequently. Go to the nursing home at different times of the day and on different days of the week. Do not keep a regular schedule. Talk to other residents’ family members and ask if they are experiencing any of the same issue as you are. Talk to the Director of Nurses and the Administrator and let your concerns be know.
