NURSING HOME ABUSE
Professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient, with most cases involving medical error.
A s our population ages and moves south in their retirement, the elderly and infirmed population in the State of Florida continues to grow. And while nursing homes often care for many of the elderly, the care that they receive sometimes falls below acceptable standards. We place our elderly relatives’ physical and mental care in the hands of paid, trained professionals and we expect that all of their medical and nursing needs are properly met. In the event that you have a relative that has been mentally or physically neglected or abused, call our office to discuss the rights and remedies available to them.
