Examples of claims arising from the negligent or intentional acts or omissions of nursing home or assisted living care providers include: failure to monitor or supervise, falls resulting in fracture or other serious injuries, over sedation, overdose, or other medication errors, aspiration, choking or failure to maintain an airway, bed sores, medication theft by staff, sexual assault, physical and mental abuse. There are many other factual scenarios which may give rise to a claim of nursing home malpractice. For example, lawyers at Sylvester & Brow recently handled a claim against a nursing home facility relating to its failure to properly monitor a patient who needed help with almost all of his personal needs. An investigation into the care and treatment of this patient by authorities found the nursing home did not properly monitor, care and treat this patient. And, as a consequence, he suffered severe injuries and ultimately died.
