There inevitably reaches a point in the life of an elderly person where they are no longer able to take of themselves. While it is of course worth celebrating the long life of a person as each year passes on, the reality of life is that we are not invincible. Our bodies and minds eventually wear down.
While in many family’s situations, there are family members and friends who are able to take care of their aging loved one, there often reaches a point where 24-hour care is required, and not all families are in a position to take care of the person in need of help.
It is not uncommon, when the time comes, to consider and eventually admit your loved one into a nursing home facility. While many nursing homes live up to their promise of sound and reasonable care, all too often we hear tragic stories of nursing home facilities not taking care of their patients. It may be a lack of physical care – not changing a patient’s bedding or clothes regularly, or that they are not properly fed and become malnourished, or they may suffer an illness that is not property addressed or treated. When this occurs and a patient is injured, becomes ill, or possibly dies, a wrongful death claim may be made against the nursing home facility.
