New York Lack of Supervision: Protecting the Rights of Residents
Nursing homes are obligated to provide a specific standard of care and quality of life to their residents. Unfortunately, several factors including poor staffing, lax supervision and carelessness can all lead to malnutrition and dehydration.
At Adams Law Firm, P.C., we are committed to protecting the rights of nursing home neglect and abuse victims. We understand the harsh realities associated with many facilities: Many residents are at the mercy of their caregivers.
Our attorneys understand the important role your loved one's diet plays in their day-to-day care. Proper nutrition and appropriate fluids are the building blocks of healthy living. Without the right diet, your loved one could suffer serious direct and indirect consequences.
Our Bronx malnutrition and dehydration in nursing home attorneys can evaluate your loved one's situation from every angle. We can determine if personnel failed to recognize, monitor or adjust your loved one's diet accordingly. We can pursue suitable resolutions to cases involving:
- Diabetes side effects
- Organ failure
- Urinary tract infections
Neglect and Abuse
At Adams Law Firm, P.C., we have noticed an increased prevalence of nursing home neglect. Like bedsores and falls, dehydration and malnutrition are mostly preventable. Improper staffing, training and cutting corners create an environment ripe for neglect.
Our lawyers believe that your loved one deserves the highest level of care and medical attention. Senior citizens should be revered, not treated as second-class citizens. We are committed to protecting the rights of nursing home abuse victims and the families of wrongful death victims.
