Nursing Homes Have a Duty to Protect Their Residents
A common defense by the companies running nursing homes in these cases is that injuries cannot be helped. This argument is extremely flawed. If a senior citizen will suffer injuries either way, why entrust their care to a nursing home to begin with? These facilities have a duty to do all in their power to keep residents safe and comfortable. Failing to do so is an egregious breach of trust.
Common, preventable nursing home injuries include:
- Giving a resident a medication overdose
- Allowing residents to lay in bed all day, resulting in bed sores
- Hiring undertrained or unqualified staff
- Providing a resident with the wrong medication
- Underfeeding residents
In addition, elderly residents may be the subjects of physical and emotional abuse from the staff. If you notice signs of withdrawal, uncharacteristic anxiety, unexplained bruises, or other out-of-place symptoms, consider discussing your case with our firm.
A Lawsuit Can Protect the Rights of Your Loved One & Others

Consult with an Oxford nursing injury lawyer if you suspect abuse or neglect has occurred. These claims are always worth investigating in order to protect the people entrusted to these facilities.
