Pompano Beach Medical Neglect

Unfortunately, medical neglect in Pompano Beach and other Florida communities is all too common. This type of neglect can happen in care homes, nursing homes, and even schools. It can occur when parents and caregivers fail to take their children to a doctor when children are ill and it can even happen if patients are overlooked or ignored in a hospital.

Medical Neglect and Medical Malpractice in Pompano Beach and Florida can Have Dire Consequences

Failing to provide reasonable medical attention and assistance to someone in care can have serious consequences and can lead to:

  • Infection or gangrene
  • Infestations of lice, bed bugs, and other pests
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Organ failure
  • Coma
  • Sepsis
  • Seizures
  • Side effects or medical interactions from incorrectly administered medication
  • Medical complications
  • Fatalities

These complications can often be prevented with adequate medical attention and reasonable care. When complications occur due to negligence, it is important to get answers and to hold liable parties accountable to send a strong message and to get justice on behalf of those who have been injured.

Why Does Medical Neglect Occur?

Medical neglect can occur for a number of reasons:

  • Inattention
  • Poor policies in a care environment
  • Understaffing
  • Overworked staff
  • Lack of adequate monitoring
  • Poorly trained staff
  • Underqualified staff
  • Abusive staff

There is no excuse for medical neglect. In nursing homes, schools, hospitals, assisted living facilities, and other environments, those in care may be more vulnerable and need caregivers to provide adequate attention and help. Part of that attention means providing adequate access to medical care. Staff in care facilities should be able to:

  • Follow doctor’s directions regarding medication and medical treatment
  • Monitor symptoms
  • Respond reasonably to symptoms as they develop
  • Respond promptly in cases of potential medical emergencies
  • Listen to medical concerns and reporting of symptoms and respond reasonably
  • Provide additional medical monitoring and medical assistance for residents and patients who cannot care for themselves

When staff in nursing homes, care homes, and other care environments fail to do these things, they can be held liable if their actions lead to injury or to a medical complication.
