Homestead Inadequate Supervision

Elderly loved ones who are in assisted-living facilities or nursing homes deserve to live their lives with dignity and with the highest quality-of-life possible for their physical condition. A large part of that requires that these patients and residents be carefully supervised with everyday tasks. In fact, the reason why many families make the difficult decision to put an elderly relative in assisted living facility is because they simply cannot provide the around-the-clock care that a family member deserves.

When residents of caregiving facilities are not adequately supervising residents, patients can easily fall victim to violence or they can fall or can otherwise injure themselves. In some cases, if patients are not adequately supervised they may not be able to care for themselves and may not be able to eat or take care of other basic everyday tasks. If you suspect that an elderly loved one has been abused or has suffered an injury due to inadequate supervision, you deserve to get answers. In addition to speaking with the facility administration, you may wish to contact Flaxman Law Group for a free, no obligation case evaluation to review your legal options.

How Supervision Problems Happen

Inadequate supervision in care settings happens for many reasons:

  • Understaffing
  • Rapid staff turnover
  • Poor staff training
  • Staff are unwilling or unable to deal with difficult residents and simply separate them and do not provide them with adequate care
Serious Injuries Are a Common Result When Patients are not Carefully Supervised

There are many instances and examples of inadequate supervision in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities in Homestead. This inadequate supervision can lead to many types of injuries and accidents:

  • Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents
  • Fractures
  • Violence
  • Inadequate security
  • Patients wandering off and injuring themselves
  • Patients not being able to feed themselves or care for themselves

There is no excuse for inadequate supervision. Proper supervision is in fact one of the reasons why people place loved ones in assisted-living facilities and nursing homes. If you believe that a loved one has suffered an injury because they have not been correctly supervised, contact Flaxman Law Group to arrange for a free case evaluation.
