Types of Nursing Home Injury Cases

Q. What are some types of Kentucky nursing home injury cases?

A. Many Kentucky nursing home injury cases are based upon allegations of malnutrition or dehydration. Additionally, bed sores (also called pressure sores or decubitus ulcers) form the basis of allegations of nursing home negligence. Prescription drug errors also can result in injuries. Errors can include dispensing the wrong medication to the wrong resident or failing to give a patient his or her medicine. Sometimes, when infections occur, or when infections are improperly treated or not timely recognized, it is appropriate to investigate concerns about nursing home negligence or nursing home neglect.

Fractures, dislocations or other injuries also form the basis of Kentucky nursing home injury claims. If you have concerns that a loved one was the victim of nursing home neglect, nursing home abuse or suffered an injury in a Kentucky nursing home, you should consider contacting authorities, like the police, Attorney General's Office and/or Adult Protective Services and you should also consider consulting a Kentucky attorney that handles nursing home injury cases.
