Nursing homes owe their residents a reasonable standard of care. The assisted living facility staff should be monitoring each resident’s medication needs, drug interactions, as well as their physical and mental health. It is important that they respond to a senior citizen’s complaints, no matter how big or small, to ensure the resident is getting the quality of care they deserve.
Otherwise, neglecting an elderly person can make the medical professional and facility liable for not monitoring their resident. Neglect is just one of the Tampa nursing home concerns we take on for an individual and their loved ones. Joyce and Reyes Law Firm is also skilled in Tampa nursing home abuse cases. Abuse can take the form of verbal or physical abuse, stealing money or medications, and withholding food or water, for example. Some nursing homes fail to conduct proper background checks on personnel, and end up hiring criminals or unqualified persons to perform critical duties. Any individuals with these concerns should contact a qualified Tampa nursing home attorney to uphold their rights.
