Ethan Vessels represents individuals and families of those who have been injured or died because of the negligence of nursing home personnel. He has recovered millions in settlements in the last ten years. To be sure, every resident of a nursing home is feeble, ill, or otherwise in poor health. Many patients do not recover from the conditions that required the long-term care. Nonetheless, nursing homes and long-term care facilities have a duty to treat each patient carefully and with respect.
The often-quoted commandment, “First, do no harm” is the minimum standard that we expect for facilities that care for our loved ones. The most common examples of nursing-home negligence:
- Preventable falls arising from the failure to follow fall-prevention policies;
- Patient wandering due to inadequate supervision;
- Drug administration errors (incorrect medications or wrong dosage);
- Neglect as evidenced by bed sores, pressure sores, dehydration, or malnutrition;
- Injuries caused by inadequate staffing;
- Abuse of patients;
Watch: What Is Nursing Home Negligence?
Nursing homes are frequently involved in lawsuits. Some are sued by federal or state agencies while others involve specific family or friends who suspect abuse or negligence. Nursing homes usually have very skilled attorneys of their own who are kept on retainer full-time.
