Understanding Negligence in a Nursing Home

Negligence in a nursing home occurs when someone under the care of the staff does not receive adequate medical, physical, or emotional attention. If your loved one has suffered from neglect while on the premises of his or her nursing home, the facility can be held legally responsible.

At Martin + Fielding, we've helped clients seek compensation and have represented cases where a nursing home failed their residents in ways including:

  • Failure to keep the premises free of hazards

  • Failure to prevent slips and falls

  • Failure to train employees

  • Failure to protect one resident from another

Our negligence attorneys in Oklahoma City, and throughout the Oklahoma City Metro Area, are committed to our clients and take cases on contingency, meaning we won't charge you any fees unless we recover compensation.

What Is Elopement?

Elopement involves a resident leaving the facility without the staff knowing about it which is why careful supervision in nursing homes is critical to the safety of its residents, especially those who are at risk of wandering off. It is the nursing home’s duty to watch over these residents as closely as necessary to ensure their security. If you believe your loved one wandered off because he or she was left unsupervised, you may be entitled to compensation.

At Martin + Fielding, we understand that some residents may be more prone to eloping, including those who suffer from the following:

  • Dementia

  • Alzheimer's disease

  • Depression or anxiety

  • Other psychiatric conditions

If your loved one has suffered harm and you’re ready to take action, we are prepared to get started during a free consultation. Elopement is a sign of negligence that should never be tolerated, and as Oklahoma City nursing home abuse attorneys, we know what it takes to build a strong case against this serious issue.

Common Causes of Overdose

Suffering an overdose in a nursing home is an act of negligence on the part of the nursing home staff. Unfortunately, it is not an uncommon occurrence. While caretakers in a nursing home should receive adequate training on how to care for residents, sometimes staff members act negligently, carelessly, or abusively, which puts the residents' health at risk.

Resident overdose can occur after any of the following:

  • Staff gives residents the wrong medication

  • Staff gives residents the wrong dosage

  • Staff skips a dose of medication

As Oklahoma City nursing home abuse attorneys, we are fully equipped to help you determine the strengths of your case. If you believe your loved one suffered an overdose while under the care of a nursing home staff, we are prepared to help.

Common Symptoms of Aspiration Pneumonia

Unfortunately, aspiration pneumonia, an infection in the lung caused by inhaling food, stomach acid, or saliva, is on the rise among nursing home residents. If left untreated, the infection can become a much more serious condition. If you or a loved one have suffered because of this sickness and the nursing home failed to get you proper medical attention, you may be entitled to compensation.

Martin + Fielding has represented clients that have endured the following symptoms of aspiration pneumonia:

  • Poor oral hygiene and bad breath

  • Coughing and wheezing

  • Chest pain

  • Shortness of breath

  • Fever

  • Sweating

  • Fatigue
