When someone living in a nursing home or assisted living facility undergoes a change in his or her condition, the responsibility lies on the nursing home staff to provide timely, high-quality medical care or to transfer the patient to a hospital better equipped to handle the situation. When they fail to provide timely and proper medical treatment, the results can be tragic.
Has your loved one suffered as a result of a nursing home’s failure to provide medical treatment? At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., we have extensive experience representing nursing home patients and their families in neglect and abuse claims in North Carolina.
Far too often in nursing homes a simple ailment will become an emergency situation due to negligent nursing home employees who do not seek timely medical treatment. Unfortunately, it can be too late once they finally address the medical issue or get a nursing home resident to the hospital to be treated by a physician.
Many nursing home residents are already physically weakened from previous conditions, and a delay of this nature can place them in a dire situation with little hope of recovery. This is unacceptable. Our team will find out where the liability lies and fight aggressively to make sure your loved one and your family are properly compensated for what has happened.
