Yes, a Michigan nursing home can be sued from failing to supervise a resident because a nursing home facility is required to provide a staffing ratio between these care providers to properly supervise the residents in their rooms, bathrooms, the dining area, and other common areas. When a resident is injured or dies due to poor supervision, it can give rise to a Michigan nursing home neglect lawsuit.
