What is Nursing Home Negligence?

Nursing homes are meant to house our loved ones and provide medical care and attention when we are unable to do so. Unfortunately, many innocent people suffer from negligence in nursing homes, leaving them with inadequate care and often no way to speak up about it.

The attorneys of Hotze Runkle understand the vulnerability of the elderly and believe that negligent nursing home facilities and personnel should be held financially responsible for their actions. Discuss your case with us and learn how we may help you pursue remunerations for your suffering.

Examples of Nursing Home Negligence

Numerous behaviors might be considered negligence in Texas nursing homes, including:

  • Misfiling or losing resident paperwork
  • Mixing up medications for residents
  • Failing to regularly check on residents in rooms
  • Failing to clean up after residents
  • Failure to sterilize resident areas
  • Failure to treat a sickness or illness

All of these actions could constitute nursing home negligence and sadly are a reality for many Texas nursing home residents. However, victims do not have to sit quietly and endure negligence; they can enlist experienced legal assistance to put an end to it.
