Advocating for your loved one and nursing home patient

The attorneys at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, L.L.P., continually meet families who have serious questions and concerns about the health and safety of a loved one living in a New York nursing home facility. In some instances, they suspect that their spouse or parent is being neglected by nursing home medical staff. Other times, they are distraught by the fact that their loved one’s fatal injury could have been prevented with improved patient care and preventative measures. Serious and fatal incidents of nursing home abuse and neglect happen every year across the state and country. That is why we strive to always advocate on behalf of our clients and the most vulnerable members of our community.

An important aspect of protecting the safety and rights of nursing home patients is recognizing that many of them have serious and degenerative conditions that prevent them from being able to defend themselves or speak out against mistreatment. The effects of advanced aging and age-related diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s often have physical as well as psychological effects on patients. Therefore, many nursing home patients exhibit signs of depression and/or aggression, along with other symptoms like mobility problems or physical combativeness. In a home setting, these issues can be very challenging to address safely. Nursing home medical staff, however, are trained and required to respond to the needs of all patients appropriately at all times.

Recognizing that standards of care are mandatory and enforceable for all nursing home and long-term care facilities, medical staff is always obligated to provide a safe and healthy environment for patients. This includes but is not limited to recognizing the medical, physical and psychological limitations of each patient and responding appropriately with comprehensive care and prevention methods. For instance, a patient who cannot feed him or herself independently should be fed by staff and monitored for possible issues like malnutrition and dehydration. Similarly, an aggressive or combative patient should be safely restrained and monitored without the use of unnecessary and potentially harmful medications.

Acting as the voice of nursing home patients is integral to upholding the rights of vulnerable family members and loved ones. Learn more about nursing home negligence by visiting our web page today.
