Understanding Nursing Home Malpractice

When placing a loved one under the care of a nursing home staff, it is with the belief that they will be treated with respect and well cared for; unfortunately, this is not always the case, as nursing home staff members are often found responsible for nursing home malpractice. In such a situation, when those responsible for residents of nursing homes are negligent or irresponsible in carrying out their duties toward residents, then those residents and their families may be able to take legal action against the reckless nursing home staff member or the home itself.

Two Primary Types of Malpractice

While many different behaviors and actions can constitute malpractice in nursing homes, these individual behaviors are most often classified as one of the following two primary types of nursing home malpractice:

  • Nursing Home Abuse
  • Nursing Home Negligence

Both abuse and neglect can have devastating effects on nursing home residents, particularly when they feel that they have no one to turn to for help. Residents can end up feeling alone, experience feelings of depression, suffer physical injuries, and might even have to contend with psychological damage. But residents fight back against those who abuse their positions in nursing homes by filing a personal injury claim against them.
