Can I Sue a Nursing Home for Negligence?

By Robert Kahn on April 2, 2015 - Comments off

LA Nursing Home AbuseA nursing home can become a defendant in a lawsuit, likely meaning that a personal injury, wrongful death, or medical malpractice lawsuit has been filed against them, if they acted negligently or with abuse that caused an injury or death to the nursing home resident.

What Kind of Conduct Can Warrant a Lawsuit?

There are many incidences, either intentional or negligent, that could cause the nursing home to be liable, from the actions of either an employee or as part of their protocol. These include but are not limited to the following:

  • Hiring the Negligent Employees: If the nursing home hires an employee that is not qualified or properly trained, and that employee harms a patient, the nursing home could be liable for negligent hiring.
  • Bad Medical Treatment: This falls under medical negligence, or more commonly known as medical malpractice. This occurs when there is medical treatment given to someone in a less than reasonable manner that results in an injury to that person.
  • Bad Supervision: When the nursing home staff improperly supervises the nursing home residents, who later fall or injure themselves in another manner, then the nursing home can be liable for those resulting injuries.
  • Failure to Keep the Nursing Home Safe: The nursing home may negligently leave something on the ground that a resident later trips on, or leave loose wires that electrocute a resident. Either way, the nursing home staff has a duty to keep their place reasonably safe.
