Nursing Home Clinical Negligence

Nursing homes provide all the day-to-day care that you would expect from any care home, but the care is supervised by registered nurses who are on duty all day and all night.

People who have an illness or medical condition requiring frequent medical attention will often be cared for in a nursing home.

When a family member enters a nursing home you put your trust in the staff to provide the care and treatment they require. When the level of care provided falls below the standard that can reasonably be expected, it can often result in:

  • Pressure sores;
  • Fractures sustained from falls that could have been avoided;
  • Orthopedic claims (delayed diagnosis of a fracture or poor management of a fracture)
  • Nursing home staff failing to seek timely medical assistance or
  • Prescription errors, causing serious harm

This can be very distressing for you and your loved one.

If your loved one has been affected by poor care provided in a nursing home, you can contact our team on 0113 284 5000 or for further information and free advice.
