Cincinnati, Ohio, Nursing Home Injury Attorneys
Each patient has certain rights under the Nursing Home Bill of Rights. This bill provides certain rights to each patient. This includes:
- General treatment of your loved one
- Bathroom schedule
- Feeding and nutrition schedule
- Medication regimen
- Cleanliness of the facility and the resident’s personal space
- Safety measures
- Protection from negligence
Many times there are rights that your loved one may be entitled to that you do not even know about. If you suspect your loved one is being mistreated or not served as he or she deserves, contact us. We are prepared to evaluate the situation and make sure that the resident’s best interests are being protected.
We will review all documentation in the matter, obtaining the records and charts needed to know exactly what schedules are being followed. We are also equipped to do on-sight inspections, if necessary.
It is important that you act quickly, though. There is a short statute of limitations on nursing home negligence claims of only a year, from the time of the offense to the resolution of the matter. You must either settle the claim or file a lawsuit within that time frame or the matter will be thrown out.
This may seem like a significant amount of time, but there is much that has to be done in that timeline. For instance, all records and documentation of the offense(s) must be collected and organized in a manner that creates a convincing claim. Please find representation as soon as possible after you discover the negligence or mistreatment.
