Worcester Resident Abuse Lawyer
Nursing home injuries occur for a variety of reasons:
- Many nursing homes are understaffed
- Nursing home patients may be unsupervised
- There may not be a physician on staff
- Staff may make errors
- Nurses, physicians, and nursing home attendants may be improperly trained on the proper care of elderly patients
- Other conditions may make nursing homes unsafe for your loved one
If an elderly family member has experienced a nursing home injury, contact a Boston nursing home injury attorney at Barry D. Lang, M.D. & Associates We can help you determine if the injury was caused by negligence on part of the nursing home.
One of the biggest threats to nursing home patients is the prospect of a delayed diagnosis. When skin injuries, pneumonia, respiratory problems, UTIs, and other conditions go undiagnosed, an elderly patient can greatly suffer.
