North Miami Inadequate Supervision
One of the important functions of an assisted living facility or nursing home is the staff that is supposed to check the whereabouts of patients and ensure that they have the support they need for daily tasks. When staff fail to do this, the consequences can be dire. Residents can fall victim to abuse, can be involved in slip and fall accidents in North Miami or their community, or can sustain injuries in a number of ways. Staff are expected to provide reasonable care, and when they don't the families of injured residents may have a legal claim that allows them to seek compensation, punitive damages, and other damages for the injuries sustained.

There are many things that assisted living facilities are supposed to do to ensure proper supervision of patients and residents:
- Help patients and supervise them in daily tasks that may be a challenge for them
- Do a regular headcount to ensure that everyone is accounted for
- Account for residents’ whereabouts on a daily basis
- Provide adequate supervision and security to ensure that residents cannot wander off
- Not leave the residents unattended and unsupervised
When staff fail to provide this level of care, they can be held accountable if a patient is injured as a result.Who Is Liable In Negligent Supervision Cases?
