Dirty and unsanitary conditions can put residents of nursing homes at risk for developing serious infections. These infections can lead to an increase in medical expenses, lengthy hospital visits and disabilities. Federal laws have been put in place to require assisted living facilities and nursing homes, which accept Medicare, to maintain their facilities with sanitary and clean conditions.
If any long-term care facility violates these regulations and puts its residents at risk of injuries or illnesses, family members will have the right to obtain a nursing home abuse lawyer. A nursing home neglect lawsuit may be filed as a result of poor hygiene in nursing homes.
Here at KBA Attorneys, we take nursing home abuse very seriously. If you believe your loved one has been injured or sustained a serious infection due to unsanitary living conditions, get in contact with us for legal advice.
