Yes, a nursing home in Michigan is liable for not supervising a resident who is injured. A nursing facility is required to supervise its residents and if they do not supervise, or offer poor supervision to a resident that results in an injury or death, the facility is violating the law giving rise to a Michigan nursing home neglect lawsuit.
Injury caused by the lack of supervision could easily have been avoided. In fact, a facility is required to provide a staffing ratio between care providers to properly supervise the residents in their rooms, bathrooms, the dining area, and other common areas. This is not always the case. Some nursing homes and assisted living facilities fail to fix the problem in a timely manner and as a result injury or death to a resident becomes the outcome.
