What are common examples of nursing home abuse in South Carolina?
Most nursing homes are staffed by caring and professional staff that provide attentive care to their residents. However, nursing homes are businesses. When nursing homes choose to put profits ahead of people, sometimes they purposely decide to reduce costs by hiring untrained staff or by deliberately understaffing their nursing home facility. The result can be neglect and abuse of residents.
Unfortunately, there are many different types of nursing home abuse in South Carolina. Examples of injuries that can result from understaffing or a lack of supervision include:
- Falls resulting in broken bones
- Bedsores caused by not moving an immobile patient
- Injuries caused by a patient wandering away from the facility
- Emergency room visits caused by dehydration or malnutrition
- Overmedicating patients
- Prescription drug errors
- Injuries caused restraints
Nursing home injuries can be devastating. Our lawyers will consult experts, including people who have worked in nursing homes, who can determine if your loved one's injury was the result of normal aging process or the result of neglect. When your loved one is a victim of abuse or neglect, our attorneys will work tirelessly to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions.
