All families face the same challenges in searching for a nursing home for their parent or grandparent. It becomes difficult to find a home that meets the standard of care that you would want for your loved one. No one can do a better job than you would. When you finally make your decision, you place tremendous trust in the nursing home provider. You trust that they will be compassionate and care for your loved one with a high standard of care. If you find that the standard of care has not been met, you may have a legal case.
At Jeffries, Kube, Forrest & Monteleone Co. L.P.A., our attorneys help individuals and families address injuries that stem from negligent nursing home care. If your loved one is dehydrated or facing another complication because of neglect on the part of staff our attorneys can help. Located in Cleveland, we work hard serving individuals throughout Ohio.
Nursing Home Negligence
Unfortunately, nursing home staff are often overworked and largely undertrained for the job they need to perform. Dehydration can occur when there is lack of accurate record keeping on the part of staff. While dehydration does not sound very serious, on the contrary it is dangerous and often triggers much more serious underlying conditions, including dementia and psychosis.
How Our Attorneys Can Help
Our attorneys can help individuals by gathering any and all medical records kept by the organization. Because this type of case is tied to a medical condition, we have a doctor or nurse on board as an expert at the inception of every case. Our attorneys interview visitors and family members who have known the individual for years. After compiling our evidence in your case, we explore the possibility of a fair settlement. If a fair settlement cannot be achieved without filing suit, our attorneys will pursue a court case. However, these cases have a time limit of one year.
