A Nursing Home’s Duty to Provide Care

When an individual moves into a nursing home, that facility agrees to provide them with the best possible care.

This agreement involves a promise to:

  • Help the resident attain and maintain the best possible living conditions.
  • Ensure that they do not contribute to the decline of the resident’s condition.
  • Do whatever they can to maintain and improve the resident’s health.

In addition, under California and federal law, nursing homes are required to follow several specific care standards. When these standards are violated, and especially when neglecting the standards results in the injury or death of a resident, it can lead to lawsuits to compensate victims of abuse.

The care standards that nursing homes are required to follow pertain to many areas, including:

  • Adequate staffing
  • Infection control
  • Proper medication
  • Feeding tubes
  • Personal care
  • The accommodation of needs
  • Care planning
  • Vision, dental, and hearing care
  • Accident prevention
  • Adequate nutrition and hydration
  • Physician services
  • The prevention of bedsores
  • Special services

When a nursing home fails in their duty to provide care in any of the above categories, legal action can be taken against them. If you believe your care facility has broken their promise to care for and protect you, let our knowledgeable lawyers help you build a case against them.
