Some of the most common elements of nursing home lawsuits are bedsores and malnutrition. In many cases, nursing home bedsores result from neglect and improper care. When bedsores do occur, they can be treated, but they grow much worse when the nursing home staff fails to properly care for the wound.
Malnutrition is another symptom of nursing home neglect that can lead to injury and death. Families of seniors who develop either of these injuries at a nursing facility can file a nursing home negligence lawsuit against the facility and may be able to receive financial compensation.
