Nursing Home Malpractice

Nursing home residents may become a victim of medical malpractice if their physicians or nurses fail to provide treatment which meets the minimum level of care. Under the law, residents are entitled to services designed to attain, or at least maintain, the greatest possible degree of physical, mental and social well-being. Unfortunately, nursing home facilities frequently fail to provide these services.

Many elderly residents require daily medical treatment which must be performed in a proper and timely fashion.  Nursing home malpractice occurs when the medical services provided by a resident’s doctors or nursing staff does not meet the minimum standard of care required.  If a nursing home resident is injured or dies because a medical provider violated the standard of care, he/she is entitled to be compensated for the damages caused by improper treatment under Pennsylvania law.

Don’t Wait to Consult with an Experienced Injury Lawyer

The time you have to bring a claim for personal injury or wrongful death resulting from neglectful or abusive nursing home care is limited.  In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for negligence, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims is two years.  In general, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims begins to run from the time of your injury or when you knew, or reasonably should have discovered, that your injury was a result of neglect or medical malpractice. In cases for wrongful death, the statute of limitations begins to run on the date of death. If you fail to file a claim within the statute of limitations you will lose your right to sue.

If you suspect that a nursing home resident was injured or killed due to mistreatment at a nursing home, call an experienced injury attorney immediately.  An attorney can help you determine whether you or your loved one have a claim, and what steps you should take to protect your legal rights.
