Hialeah Inadequate Supervision
Under Florida law, nursing home facilities and nursing homes are expected to provide an adequate and quality level of care for residents. When they do not, they can be held accountable for any injuries or medical issues that residents develop as a result of negligence and recklessness.

The sooner you act, the sooner you may be able to secure compensation and get your loved one to a safer care environment.What is Negligent Supervision?
Inattentive caregivers and supervisors can happen in a variety of situations, including child care situations, nursing homes, care facilities and more. Common examples of inadequate supervision include:
- A child drowning or being injured in a pool
- An elderly resident in a care facility falling down and suffering a fracture
- A resident or patient at a care facility having an object fall on them
- A resident in a care facility not being given medical care because staff did not notice a medical problem
- An adult or child in a care setting being left in overly cold or hot temperatures
- A child finding and firing a loaded gun
- A person in care eating or drinking something toxic
- A vulnerable adult or child being abused or assaulted
- A child or vulnerable adult being attacked by an animal or stung by a poisonous insect and not receiving medical attention
There are many different situations where insufficient supervision and monitoring could have played a role in an injury. Any time you believe an injury could have been prevented, you will want to speak to a personal injury attorney in Hialeah or your community in order to review your situation and your options.Why File a Legal Claim
There are many things that filing a legal claim and nursing home abuse and negligence cases and other negligence cases can do:
- It can secure financial compensation so that patients can get medical care that they need because of the injuries they have suffered
- It can provide financial resources that can help a family provide a better care environment for a loved one
- It can hold negligent staff and facilities accountable so that others may avoid injury
- It can help give a voice to those patients who have been injured but who perhaps do not have a family fighting for them
