This shouldn’t have happened—your mother should not have died an agonizing death because of a fire in the Louisville nursing home that was supposed to keep her safe. Now you may be wondering if her death could have been avoided.
Ask the Right Questions to Get an Accurate Answer
Some of the questions that you might want to ask include:
- Was there a fire evacuation plan and was it followed?
- How did the fire start?
- When was the last safety inspection at the facility?
- What were the results of the Louisville Fire Department’s investigation?
The answers to these questions may provide you with useful information about whether your loved one’s death was a tragic and unavoidable accident or the result of nursing home abuse and neglect. You may also have unique questions based on the specific fire that killed your loved one.
How to Get All of Your Questions Answered
You might ask the right questions for the nursing home staff, but you might not get acceptable or timely answers. Instead, you may need to require the nursing home to answer your questions through the legal system.
