Nursing Home Infection Attorneys

Nursing Home Infection Attorneys

Families complete thorough research and take great care when choosing the right nursing home for their elderly family member when the elderly individual can no longer care for themselves. According to the CDC, it is estimated that 1 to 3 milion serious infections occur every year throughout nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities.

Unfortunately, senior citizens continue to face the effects of nursing home infections. In the event of nursing home infections due to negligence, the patient can suffer from severe illness or death that are otherwise avoidable if the proper care methods were in place.

Nursing Home Infections

Nursing home facilities are responsible for all of the patient’s care. The nursing home staff should take all of the necessary precautions to protect patients from infections such as pneumonia, skin infections, or urinary tract infections (UTI’s). These types of illnesses affect between 1 and 3 million patients each year.
