Although many of the Florida nursing homes do a good job of caring for their residents, occasionally nursing home residents can become victims of neglect, negligence and even outright abuse. The result can be pain and suffering or even premature death. Due to a resident’s age and health, they may not be capable of alerting others of what they are going through and some can even be fearful of speaking up. Laws do require that nursing homes have a plan of care and also maintain proper staffing to provide all the care detailed in their care plan. Residents of nursing homes have patient rights and certain protections under the law. Contact our law firm now for a free consultation to discuss your case.
