Hialeah Medical Neglect
Since nursing homes and retirement homes deliver services to elderly residents and vulnerable patients, they should be able to provide medical services and treatment appropriate for seniors. For the elderly, appropriate and timely medical care is especially important since the elderly may suffer from chronic illnesses or age-related illnesses. In addition, even a simple flu or cold can develop into pneumonia and a life-threatening illness for someone who is already frail or ill. Medical neglect in Hialeah or another Florida community can have dire consequences. Any lack of access to timely medical care can be literally deadly in a nursing home or assisted living facility. It can cause serious injury or complications that could put a person’s life at risk.
