Louisville Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing home negligence occurs when a nursing home facility has failed to provide residents with quality care that meets the required standards due to negligence and/or abuse. The rights of an individual should not be ignored simply because that person is of the age and health that requires admission into an assisted living facility.
When we place our older loved ones in a nursing home facility, we expect they will be given the care they need and be treated with respect. According to a 2003 report published by Gannett News Service, fewer than two percent of nursing home facilities receiving Medicare and Medicaid funds nationwide have been violation-free in the last four years.
Nursing home negligence has become an increasingly alarming concern for many Americans. Both the federal and state governments have introduced legislation to protect nursing home residents from neglect, mistreatment and abuse. Nursing home negligence and/or abuse may involve physical violence or aggressive treatment, inadequate supervision or failure to give proper care. These actions may result in serious injury, illness, or death. A Kentucky nursing home negligence lawyer can help you file a nursing home negligence claim in order to help you receive compensation and to make the nursing home facility safer for other patients.
