Negligence and Abuse In Assisted Living Facilities And Nursing Homes In Hallandale Beach Leads To Terrible Injuries

Assisted living negligence can result in catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Illness
  • Disfigurement
  • Burns
  • Drowning
  • Bed sores
  • Infections
  • Medical complications
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Amputation
  • Fractures, including hip fractures
  • Back injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Falls
  • Fatalities

Unfortunately, those who are in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other care settings are already often very fragile. They may have underlying conditions, may be elderly, or may have other challenges that they are dealing with. Adding a serious injury such as a fall or a fracture on top of this can make it very difficult for that person to recover from the injury.

Negligence Has a Snowball Effect

In addition, in an assisted living facility that is already negligent, there may be a delay in getting life-saving treatment and medical care for residents who have suffered a fall or another serious injury. There are tragic cases in Florida each year of loved ones succumbing to their injuries because they did not receive medical care in time. In some facilities, medical abuse in Hallandale Beach or lack of medical attention is part of the general negligence. In other facilities, owners and administrators do not want to admit that an injury has taken place and do not want to doctors called to a resident in case negligence or abuse is suspected. Delaying medical treatment often has a snowball effect, making an already dangerous situation even more hazardous for the resident.
