Placing a family member in a nursing home is a difficult decision. We want the best for our loved ones, and we count on nursing home facilities and staff to treat our family and friends with dignity, respect, and care. But, to some businesses, our loved ones’ health and safety is less important than profits and margins.
When nursing homes care more about their bottom line than the well-being of their residents, Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA’s nursing home negligence attorneys are here to help.
Adequate and attentive staffing is essential to ensuring nursing home residents get the care they need and the quality of life they deserve. Understaffing can lead to nursing home negligence, abuse, and injury, including:
In some instances, nursing home staff may make poor, careless, or negligent decisions that lead to a nursing home injury. But understaffing by a facility is a business decision that makes providing adequate care difficult or impossible for even the most diligent employees.
Companies and owners understaff for cost saving purposes, hoping to skimp on care for your loved ones in order to maximize their own profits. When these understaffing policies lead to inadequate personnel and unsupervised residents, these greedy businesses may be liable for the injuries sustained by residents and patients.
With a thriving nursing home negligence law practice, the attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA have the experience and resources necessary to take on greedy businesses and fight for your loved ones in court.
