Negligence / Mistreatment in Care Homes

There are over 420,000 people in the UK living in nursing and care homes. Very many of these people or their families are paying an average over £30,000.00 per year for the care provided.

You will have probably made the difficult decision to place your loved one in a nursing or care home and therefore be relying on the staff at the home to care and protect your loved one.

There has been much concern recently about the standard of care being provided by Nursing and Care Homes and there have been many reported cases of unacceptable levels of care being provided leading to injuries and regrettably even death.

Types of claims:

Development of bed sores
Dehydration
Malnutrition
Falls and other accidents involving injury
Medical mistakes
Wrongly dispensed medication

Examples of types of poor quality of care

Failing to provide assistance with personal hygiene
Failing to provide safe and clean accommodation
Failing to provide sufficient and well balanced meals and drinks
Failing to provide properly trained members of staff
Failing to provide suitable supervision
Failing to provide proper and adequate medical care
Failing to provide help and assistance with daily living such as ensuring that residents are kept mobile
Failing to prevent residents from developing injuries such as pressure sores
