Nursing Home Abuse in Columbia, South Carolina

Lady JusticeNursing homes provide crucial family support for many elderly people. Nursing home residents rely on their caretakers to provide general support and medical care. However, even the best nursing homes can provide inadequate care and even develop negligent practices over time. This failure to provide medical support is a violation of the trust given to these facilities.

Neglect can happen even in the best facilities. As the procedures for acceptable care change over time, some facilities may fall behind and fail to provide adequate care. As medicine advances, keeping up with current practice is an essential aspect of medical care. Besides neglect, nursing homes can also be liable for abuse and medical malpractice.

Nursing homes are generally responsible for their patients. There are reasonable expectations of care for nursing home patients. These expectations include reasonable upkeep of their facilities, staffing expectations, and appropriate medical care. Failure to uphold these requirements means the nursing home can be held liable.

We will look into the facts of your case beginning when you contact us. You are the focus of our case and we will prioritize your well-being.
