What Are Some Of The Reasons Wrongful Death In A Nursing Home Would Occur?

There are many problems that can occur at nursing homes that can result in wrongful death. Sadly, many elderly residents die in the very hands of professionals who were supposed to take care of them. While the reasons can vary, nursing home wrongful death in South Florida typically occurs as a result of abuse and neglect.

Some of the causes of nursing home wrongful death include:

  • Neglect
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Bed sores
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Physical assault by nursing home workers of other residents
  • Excessive restraints
  • Overdosing
  • Other medication errors
  • Untreated urinary tract infections
  • Untreated cerebral hemorrhage
  • Allowing residents to wander off
  • Poor oversight
  • Improperly trained staff

As you can see here, there are many ways wrongful death can take place in a nursing home. When a nursing home’s negligence causes the death of your loved one, you should contact a knowledgeable Florida wrongful death attorney for help establishing a wrongful death claim.
