Nursing homes are meant to be a place where the elderly of our society can go and be taken care of when no one else is able to do so. As such, Louisville nursing homes have a duty to their residents and families to provide the best care possible during the fragile years.
Often times these places fail in their duty by not providing enough staff, and thereby, neglecting care to the people that live at the nursing home. This neglect occurs more frequently than is commonly known and causes tremendous harm to the residents of the home and their families.
When the elderly and sick are neglected because of understaffing, their health can become a serious problem. Understaffed nursing home residents can become seriously injured, dangerously sick, or even die.
The nursing home can be liable for such health problems because they have a duty to protect and take care of the residents they take in. The law can provide a remedy for the injured nursing home residents and their families when the home ignores its duty of care for the people living there. It is possible to recover money damages from the nursing home owner for personal injury or wrongful death.
