North Miami Beach Inadequate Supervision

In a nursing home or assisted living facility, inadequate supervision is one of the biggest dangers to residents and patients. In fact, one of the biggest reasons why elderly loved ones are placed in a nursing home or care environment is because family cannot adequately supervise them. The idea is that a care environment will provide the assistance and supervision required to keep the patient or resident safe while also providing them with a good standard of life. When staff are negligent in providing adequate supervision, many things can go wrong. A patient may wander away or may not properly care for themselves, falling prey to malnutrition, seizures, and other fatal or life-threatening injuries.

Inadequate Supervision in North Miami Beach and Other Florida Communities Affects Many Families

Many inadequate supervision cases in Florida involve:

  • Nursing homes
  • Long-term care facilities and assisted living facilities
  • Daycares
  • Schools
  • Camps or other childcare settings
  • Workplace injuries
  • Construction sites

While children and the elderly are most vulnerable to inadequate supervision, the reality is that many settings rely on good supervision and monitoring for basic safety. When hazardous workplaces are not correctly monitored, for example, serious work injury can occur. When children are not correctly supervised in swimming classes or by nannies, they can easily fall victim to serious injuries. All caregivers have a duty of care to their charges and employers have a duty of care to their workers.
