Confronting the reality of nursing home abuse or neglect

As with any other occupational field, accidents can and do happen in the medical field. Unfortunately, when mistakes occur in the medical field their repercussions can be much more severe than they would be in other industries. When harm comes to patients as the result of medical negligence, it may be time to speak with a medical malpractice attorney.

When most people in New Jersey think of medical malpractice, they may automatically think of suing a doctor for something specific that he or she did. For example, if a surgeon left an object such as a sponge or an instrument inside a patient during surgery, to many it would be clear that some form of negligence occurred. However, medical malpractice cases can be very complex and may involve more than just a single doctor.

Nowadays, many in the local area have loved ones in nursing homes, group homes or similar medical facilities. In these types of situations it is not uncommon for nursing errors to occur or even for nursing home abuse or neglect to affect a loved one. Staff in these facilities may be overworked through no fault of their own, poorly trained or simply unable to handle the often-intense workload. In other situations, group home abuse or neglect may occur through the willful abdication of responsibility by workers, nurses of even doctors.
