Nursing Home Abuse
We all like to think that when we entrust nursing home facilities and their staff with the care and treatment of our loved ones, that they will be well taken care of. Unfortunately, in many instances, this does not occur. Over the past 20 years, Long Island nursing home abuse lawyer Marc S. Albert has been litigating actions against nursing homes on behalf of patients who were injured, or in some cases lost their lives, due to negligence or neglect on the part of the nursing home.
Many nursing home facilities do not have doctors on staff and the nurses or attendants that they do have taking care of the patients are often inexperienced. Because of this, simple protocols such as turning and repositioning the patient to avoid the development of bedsores and keeping close supervision of patients while being transferred or while ambulating to avoid falls are often ignored. Negligence in this regard can often have dire consequences to the patient, including but not limited to serious injury or death.
The litigation of nursing home cases requires specialized knowledge of the attorney. Knowing the proofs necessary to prevail in these cases, the documents to request in discovery and the depositions of nursing staff to take can be the difference between winning and losing the case. Our New York nursing home abuse law firm has a great deal of experience in litigating nursing home cases. Some of his recent cases include:
