Coral Springs Medical Neglect
Care homes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other care facilities are responsible for making sure that patients get needed medical treatment and medications. Unfortunately, while some staff and some facilities are very adept at providing residents and patients with the care they need, others are reckless and negligent. In these cases, it is often the residents and families who suffer.

Medical neglect can be deadly. When patients do not get appropriate levels of care and attention, they can face serious injury and even fatalities. Some common issues that stem from medical neglect include:
- Diabetic patients slipping into a coma or even passing away because they are not given insulin
- Patients with dental issues or wounds developing infections, gangrene, or sepsis because they are not given medical care
- Children and mothers suffering life-threatening complications in the delivery room because of a delay in treatment or medical attention
- Patients reacting badly to medication or having serious side effects because medication is not administered correctly
- Patients suffering from stroke, heart attack, and other serious issues because of under-medication or lack of follow-up care
- Patients with chronic conditions passing away because their treatable conditions are not managed correctly
Any time that patients or residents in care environments do not get adequate access to medical assistance or medical care, their health and even their lives may be at risk. Unfortunately, due to budget cutbacks, poor policies, understaffing, and recklessness these kinds of situations occur all over Florida each year, sometimes with tragic consequences. If you suspect that you or a loved one have been injured due to medical neglect, it is important to act fast and to seek maximum compensation so that you can pay for quality medical services so that you can heal as fully as possible.Seeking Justice in a Neglect or Medical Malpractice Claim in Coral Springs or Another Florida Community
