Protecting Nursing Home Residents From Negligent Staff

Nursing homes in Georgia are supposed to provide a high level of care by the staff who are trained and well-supervised. Unfortunately, management companies often take shortcuts in the hiring process, fail to provide necessary ongoing training and fail to supervise their staff, all in an effort to cut corners and save money.

Staff Responsibilities — No Excuses For Staff Negligence Or Misconduct

Direct care staff working on the floor of a nursing home facility has a responsibility to ensure that every resident is kept reasonably safe from injuries, including self-injury, assault, and abuse from other residents and injuries resulting from staff errors or misconduct.

Whether the staff member is a trained nursing or medical professional or an orderly handling day-to-day responsibilities for the residents’ care and comfort, there is no excuse for injuries resulting from inattentiveness or lack of oversight. If your loved one suffered an injury while under the care of a nursing home staff in Georgia or elsewhere in the Southeast, talk to a personal injury trial lawyer at Dozier Law in Macon or Savannah as soon as possible.

What To Look For — Signs Of Negligence

Our experienced attorneys have helped families recover full and fair compensation for injuries resulting from nursing home negligence or misconduct such as:

  • Malnutrition, dehydration

  • Pressure ulcers, bedsores

There may be other symptoms as well. If you suspect that your loved one is not receiving the proper care at a nursing home or adult care facility, do not wait to take action. Your loved one’s life could be in danger.

Wonderful law firm that cares

I was injured in a terrible fall which left my foot, arm back and knee badly bruised. The Dozier Law Firm was awesome. Attorney Dustin Hamilton reviewed and accepted my case and within a few months he was able to settle my case for more than I ever imagine. The Dozier Law Firm is A+ in my book.
