Negligence by Home Health Care Providers
Home health care providers are required by law to keep accurate and up-to-date records of the care and treatment they provide. In handling a home health care negligence case, our attorneys thoroughly investigate all pertinent records, including care plans, medication logs and hiring documents.
Our thorough, proactive approach often uncovers signs of negligence by visiting nurses, such as:
- Medication errors
- Bed sores
- Restraint injuries
- Transportation injuries
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Failures in communication between the home health care provider and doctor
- Defective or inadequately maintained medical equipment
Some cases of home health care injuries are the result of negligence or carelessness of visiting nurses, nursing assistants and other individuals — which could be considered nursing malpractice if the nurse did not meet the expected standard of care.
Other cases are the result of inadequate training and negligent hiring practices by the home health care company. Our lawyers will work to identify all liable parties to help you pursue maximum compensation for the losses you have suffered.
