What Is Nursing Home Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death in a nursing home refers to the tragic circumstance where a resident dies due to neglect or abuse. This can be attributed to the care facility, staff, or other residents.

Nursing homes have a duty of care to their residents, which means they are responsible for providing a safe and healthy environment. They must also ensure the residents receive adequate medical care, nutrition, and attention.

•     Violence between residents

•     Physical assault perpetrated by nursing home staff

•     Injuries resulting from restraints

•     Malnutrition and dehydration

•     Poor hygiene and unsanitary living conditions

•     Severe bedsores that are left untreated

•     Infections contracted within the nursing home

•     Unsupervised residents wandering or leaving the facility

Can a Nursing Home Facility Be Sued for Wrongful Death?

If you have lost a loved one due to negligence or abuse in a nursing home, you may wonder whether you can take legal action against the facility. The answer is yes. You can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of an attorney to seek justice and compensation for your loss.

Although a wrongful death case cannot alleviate the pain of losing a loved one, it may offer financial compensation to assist with expenses. This may consist of the following:

•     Funeral and burial expenses

•     Pain and suffering

•     Medical bills

•     Loss of companionship

•     Punitive damages
