What are causes of medical malpractice cases involving nursing home abuse?

Medical malpractice can take many different forms in a nursing home, including instances that may result in wrongful death. Some of the most common examples of medical malpractice our nursing home abuse attorney deals with include:

  • Medication and prescription errors
    • Failure to check prescriptions
    • Failure to provide prescribed medications
    • Failure to administer prescriptions at the correct times
  • Misdiagnosis of medical conditions, including
    • Cancer misdiagnosis
    • Stroke misdiagnosis
    • Heart attack misdiagnosis
  • Abuse of medical restraints
  • Medical negligence
    • Failure to make referrals to doctors or nurses
  • Failure to treat patient in timely manner
    • Disregarding complaints or symptoms
    • Ignoring bedsores

Often, understaffing is the cause of medical negligence – when nursing homes don’t have enough staff, medication administration and monitoring of residents become lax.
