Baltimore Nursing Home Attorneys
Nursing homes are in business to care for patients who are unable to care for themselves. These patients need help with daily activities of living such as moving dressing, eating, bathing, etc. Patients in these facilities are sometimes at their weakest and need to be protected. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Nursing home negligence occurs when a nursing home staff member’s action (or inaction) fails to meet the accepted standard of care, resulting in injuries or death. Common harms caused by negligence include bedsores, improperly supervised falls, malnutrition, and dehydration. Nursing home abuse occurs when harm is intentionally inflicted. Examples can include sexual assault and physical abuse.
