Nursing home neglect lawsuit settled before going to trial

Most employees at nursing home facilities in Pennsylvania are committed to protecting the overall well-being of their patients. Unfortunately, even their best efforts may not be enough if there is not a sufficient number of staff members working to assist patients. As a result, patients across the country suffer from nursing home neglect.

Lawsuit filed in response to alleged nursing home neglect

Being a caretaker for a person with Alzheimer's or dementia can be emotionally and physically taxing. Many families in Pennsylvania feel unequipped to provide adequate care and, as a result, seek a qualified nursing home with the understanding that trained medical staff will meet the needs of their loved ones. Unfortunately, a family in another state claims in a recently filed lawsuit that their mother suffered from nursing home neglect.

For many women living centuries ago, the birth of a child often had serious consequences, sometimes resulting in either the death of the mother or the child, or both. Due to advances in medical knowledge and technology, the birth process is much more likely to be successful than it was 100 years ago. As a result, many in Pennsylvania may overlook the inherent dangers of labor and delivery. These dangers, however, can be magnified by medical malpractice. For example, a recent out-of-state case concerned claims that negligence caused severe disabilities to the baby.
