Personal Injury - Connecticut Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing homes, rest homes, convalescent homes, and elder care facilities can be held legally responsible for injuries sustained by their patients and residents if those injuries were caused by the negligence of doctors, nurses, and staff members.
Common types of nursing home negligence include:
- Rooms that are stifling in the summer and freezing in the winter
- Patients suffering malnutrition, dehydration, bed sores, or improper wound care
- Patients that wander off because of insufficient staff and/or inadequate training
- Lack of oversight that allows a patient to suffer abuse, violence, civil rights violations, or medication errors
When an elderly or otherwise vulnerable patient is injured because of negligence, they have a right to pursue meaningful compensation from their care facility.
