When A Loved One In A Nursing Home Develops An Infection (C-Diff, Staph, MRSA)
Before choosing a nursing home for yourself or your loved one, you likely did due diligence in checking out the reputation of the long-term care facility. Now you or your loved one has developed a serious infection such as C-diff, staph or MRSA.
You want and demand answers to critical questions such as:
- How did the infection develop?
- Did caregivers fail to wash their hands between residents they handled?
- Did caregivers fail to keep your loved one clean?
- Did a preventable pressure sore (bed sore or decubitus ulcer) open the door to a serious infection?
Your family member may now require hospitalization and aggressive medical treatment, as well as more expensive care needs because of the infection. He or she may be at risk of death or may have died because of the infection. Whatever the circumstances, Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., in Cleveland can help you get answers and financial relief.
Filing an injury claim or lawsuit after a family member has developed a serious infection may seem like a drastic step and you may be unsure if it is the right thing to do. Keep in mind that legal actions such as these can help prevent future harm to other residents when caregivers, supervisors and especially nursing home administrators who understaff the facility are held accountable.
If you or a loved one has developed a serious infection while in an Ohio nursing home, you deserve answers and you may be eligible for financial compensation.
