Fighting For Nursing Home Patients
Entrusting the care of your loved one to a licensed nursing facility is difficult. You expect that your loved one will receive a high standard of health care and that they will be safe. If this doesn’t happen and your trust is violated, you are left feeling frustrated and hurt. You have the right to act against the facility and caretakers that neglected to provide proper care.
At Raymond & Raymond, Ltd., our attorneys understand that nursing homes operate on the principle of trust in return for payment. They promise to take care of your vulnerable loved one who can no longer care of him or herself. Our lawyers will fight to bring your family justice and improve health care quality.
Working With All Types Of Injuries
Individuals living in nursing home facilities typically require additional assistance and care for health-related issues. When nursing home residents are neglected by the people expected to provide this care, injuries can occur. Common injuries we have seen and assisted with include:
- The development of bed sores or pressure ulcers
- Broken bones, bruising, cuts, bleeding and sprains associated with falls
- The development of advanced infections due to inaction
- Overdose and increased illness associated with inaccurate medication
- Clogged breathing tubes, burns and other injuries caused when patients aren’t monitored
If your loved one has been injured while under the care of a nursing home facility, contact our office in Schaumburg, Illinois, so we can investigate what happened.
Representative Case Studies
With over 60 years of combined experience, our lawyers have successfully obtained compensation for victims of nursing home neglect. Below is a list of some common fact patterns we have witnessed in nursing home neglect cases:
- A bed-bound, 85-year-old nursing home resident without a special air mattress and not periodically turned developed Stage IV bedsores on buttocks and coccyx which became infected and caused death.
- The nursing home did not create a fall prevention plan at admission for 83-year-old with a history of falls, resulting in fall, brain bleed and death.
- A 53-year-old rehabilitation patient in the nursing home allowed to sit in a wheelchair for long periods of time developed advanced bedsores requiring extensive hospitalization and surgical treatment.
- An 80-year-old resident with dementia, a history of repeated urinary tract infections and recent weight loss developed an untreated systemic infection before being transferred to hospital, where the patient died.
