Preventions of Nursing Home Negligence
It is the duty and obligation of a Phoenix nursing home to ensure the safety of your parent. The following are a couple necessary actions that should be taken in order to prevent elder abuse.
- Background checks need to be performed on all employees for any previous criminal activity.
- The employees should be knowledgeable on the care and handling of the elderly, especially to avoid malnutrition and bedsores.
- The nursing home also needs to be conscious and aware of its employees and their actions around elders.
When a government or public agency or employee is negligent and causes injury, there is a markedly different process involved. A more detailed explanation is available on our government and public entities claims page.
