Fort Lauderdale Medical Neglect
Many of us experience more medical conditions and issues as we age. As a result, the elderly often need additional medical support and services in order to enjoy a good quality of life and in order to stay active and healthy. In nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other care environments it is expected that staff will be sensitive to the fact that the elderly often need a little extra medical care and will provide medical care as needed. Unfortunately, in some cases medical neglect in Fort Lauderdale and Florida keeps elderly loved ones from getting the medical attention that they deserve – sometimes with dire results. Someone who does not get medical help in time can end up suffering from serious complications or can even suffer fatalities as a result of lack of medical attention.
