Our Michigan nursing home neglect attorneys are experts at investigating cases involving the failure of staff to properly supervise a nursing home resident. When your family made the difficult decision to have your loved one admitted into a skilled nursing home or assisted living facility, you relied on the facility to provide staff members that would provide necessary supervision to the resident. In fact, the staff to resident staffing ratio is often a key factor in which nursing home will be chosen for a family member.
The nursing home staff consists of registered nurses (RN), licensed practical nurses (LPN), and certified nursing assistants (CNA). The 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.
The staff not supervising a resident in a Michigan nursing home can result in serious injuries, and even death. Common types of accidents and injuries that occur from the failure to provide proper supervision include:
- Wandering and elopement from the nursing home
- Fall injuries resulting in fractures and brain bleeds
- Burn injuries due to hot water, food spills, and in showers and baths
- Choking injuries while eating in the resident room or dining area
- Ingestion of hazardous materials and non-food items
- Sexual assaults on residents by other residents, staff members, and others
Our experienced Michigan nursing home lawyers represent residents and their families in lawsuits involving the failure to provide proper supervision of the resident. These lawsuits seek compensation for the resident and the family for the injuries suffered. They also serve to prevent such a tragedy from happening to another resident in the future. When a resident dies due to improper supervision, we file a Michigan Wrongful Death lawsuit on behalf of the surviving family members.
