However, in some cases nursing home abuse and neglect in Miami Lakes and other Florida caregiving situations can occur. When medical neglect happens in these situations, vulnerable patients may not get medical treatment in time to prevent serious complications, injury, or even fatalities.

A case of medical neglect can worsen an existing condition or can cause injury or serious complications. In addition, medical neglect can affect virtually every area of a person's life, including:
- Their physical condition. A person who has been subject to medical neglect may be susceptible to infections, complications, and other injuries. If they already have a serious condition, medical neglect can prove life-threatening.
- Their emotional state. Someone who has been medically neglected may feel abandoned, isolated, and alone. They may also lose hope or faith in those around them, making it difficult for them to reach out for help.
- Their finances. In many cases, medical neglect is financially disastrous. The serious complications that can occur from medical neglect can lead to hospitalization, long-term medical care, and very expensive medical bills.
