Nursing care and nursing home claims

Nursing Care and Nursing Home Claims

When a loved one is in a care home, they require proper treatment to feel safe and comfortable. Staff are trained to ensure that your loved one is safe, comfortable and healthy. They are also responsible to ensure that they are taken care of to a good extent. Negligent treatment in a nursing home or under nursing care can lead to individuals facing damage to their mental and physical health. If you or your family member has suffered or have been injured because of someone else’s negligence, we highly advise that you contact Solicitors On Your Side now.

Most common types of nursing home and nursing care negligence

It is the professional’s responsibility to keep the residents living in good and healthy standards. If the residents have been neglected, it can cause physical emotional and financial trauma, that can be long term and life-changing. The types of negligence include:

  • Failure to provide food and drink – Carers must provide nutritious food and drink for the residents.
  • Abuse from staff – The residents rely on staff for emotional support, whilst staying in the care home. If they face abuse, it can pose emotional trauma.
  • Giving the wrong medication – The staff must give the right medication to their residents, with the correct dosage and at the correct time.
  • Falls – All vulnerable residents are at risk of falls, even the smallest falls can cause extreme damage to any individual in a care home or under care.

If you or your loved one has experienced these or any other forms of negligence, we highly recommend that you contact Solicitors On Your Side now, to help you get the highest compensation possible for your case.

Pressure ulcers and pressure sores claims 

A significant sign of negligence under care or in a care home is experiencing pressure sores and ulcers. Pressure sores occur when a patient or resident is in contact with the bed for a very long period. If a patient or resident is bed-bound, they should be provided with proper treatment, to avoid pressure sores and ulcers. Pressure sores and ulcers also occur when plaster is put on incorrectly.

We understand that it can be extremely stressful and traumatic for a family member to experience negligence in the place they are residing in, or under the care of a professional. Therefore, our experienced solicitors will use their extensive experience to help you make a successful claim for any injury or trauma you may have faced as a subject of negligence.

We advise that medical negligence claims must be usually made within three years of knowledge of the mistake. That means not since the error has occurred, but since the patient found out about the error. For patients under 18, they have three years since their 18th birthday to make a claim. For people who do not have the mental capacity to acknowledge the claim, there is no time limit.
