Coral Gables Inadequate Supervision
When families place an elderly loved one in an assisted living facility or nursing home, they expect that person to receive the highest quality care. One element of care is ensuring that an elderly loved one is correctly supervised so that they do not harm themselves, encounter a slip and fall accident, or otherwise sustain a personal injury in Coral Gables or their community. When staff at a nursing home or assisted living facility does not provide adequate supervision, elderly loved ones may suffer a slip and fall accident or may harm themselves in other ways. In some cases, the injuries sustained due to inadequate supervision can be fatal.
If a loved one has been injured due to a staff member's negligence or due to nursing home negligence, you do have rights. You may be able to pursue a legal claim that allows you to seek financial compensation that can help you help your loved one.

Many inadequate supervision cases stem from elder abuse and nursing home negligence cases involving elderly plaintiffs. However, inadequate supervision can occur in just about any setting, including:
- Assisted living facilities
- Nursing homes
- Construction sites
There are many environments where supervision is crucial for safety. In long-term care facilities, correct supervision can help protect vulnerable residents while in daycare and schools correct supervision can keep children safe.
Inadequate supervisions can also involve many things:
- No screening employees adequately
- Not having good policies in place to ensure that supervision takes place
- Not training supervisors, managers, or other employees correctly
- Not hiring enough supervisors for a task or area
When a workplace or care facility is negligent in these ways, they can be held liable if their recklessness leads to injury. Those who have been injured as a result can seek compensation through a legal claim by working with a personal injury attorney.Who is Affected by Negligent Supervision?
Unfortunately, inadequate supervision is often most devastating when it affects those who are most vulnerable. In a daycare, inadequate supervision can lead to a kidnapping or to a serious injury. In assisted living facilities and nursing homes, inadequate supervision can lead to a slip and fall accidents, malnutrition, dehydration, abuse, and other terrible outcomes. On construction sites and workplaces, inadequate supervision easily can lead to on-the-job injuries, amputations, and even fatalities.
