Yes, you may be able to file a Michigan nursing home injury lawsuit if the lack of patient oversight at the facility resulted in injury or death to your loved one. A patient may go unsupervised if the nursing home facility does not have a the right staffing ration between the care providers and patients or the nursing home staff is not properly doing their job and is careless with their supervision. No matter what the reason, if a patient suffers injuries or is killed due to the fact that there was lack of patient oversight, there is legal ground to pursue a lawsuit against the facility for their negligent care.
Some of the most common types of accidents and injuries that occur from lack of patient oversight at a nursing home include wandering and elopement from nursing home, fall injury accidents, burn injuries, choking injuries, malnutrition, dehydration, and more.
There is no excuse for lack of patient oversight. Nursing home facilities are required to provide a staffing ration between these care providers (RN’s, LPN’s, and CNA’s) to properly supervise or oversee patients in their rooms, bathrooms, in the dining area, and other common areas.
