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 higher level of care than you can provide at home and that they will be safe. This is what is promised to you, what you trust will happen. Too often, promises are broken, trust is violated, and a helpless loved-one is hurt.
At Raymond & Raymond, Ltd., our attorneys understand that nursing homes operate promise care and safety of helpless residents 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 nursing home 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, injuries can occur. Common injuries we have seen include:
- The development of bed sores or pressure ulcers
- Broken bones, bruising, cuts, bleeding and sprains associated with falls
- The development of advanced infections
- 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.
Nursing Home Cases
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 fact patterns 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.
