Frequently Asked Questions to our Boca Raton Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys
- What is ‘Abuse’?
A knowing or intentional act by a caregiver that causes harm. For example, if a med-tech falsely charts that a prescription was given to a resident when it was actually withheld, this is nursing home abuse.
- What is ‘Neglect’?
Boca Raton nursing home neglect is when a caregiver fails to meet the needs of the facility resident. For example, if a resident’s fall risk is ignored and they suffer a fall, this may be nursing home neglect.
- Who is responsible for nursing home neglect in Boca Raton?
If the facility was negligent, the nursing home licensee can be held accountable for nursing home abuse. Also, depending on their involvement, corporate management and individual owners can be held responsible for nursing home injuries.
- How can I transfer my loved one into a new Boca Raton nursing home?
Chapter 400 of the Florida Statutes ensures that every resident has a right to be transferred if they want to switch facilities. The Boca Raton area has almost 100 nursing homes. Determine which facilities can meet your loved one’s needs and then interview each location like you are looking for a job.
- What good will money damages do for my family?
It’s true that no amount of money will undue the harm caused to your family member due to the nursing home negligence. Many of our clients are uninterested in recovering monetary compensation for the harm done. Instead, they just want to make a difference in future care, and ensure that this does not happen to somebody else’s parent. Boca Raton’s nursing homes are almost entirely for-profit ventures. The only way to get the attention of management is to impact the facility’s profitability. If your family is able to secure a settlement for the harm caused to your loved one, the facility will undoubtedly take steps to prevent the incident from happening again. This is the best way to effectuate change in a for-profit nursing home industry that is only focused on money.
- What is bed sore?
A bed sore, also called a pressure injury or decubitus ulcer, is preventable skin breakdown. Bedsores typically appear on the patient’s backside and heels and can be a sign of nursing home neglect. Bed sores are never an acceptable outcome of a hospital or nursing home stay. If your loved one developed a pressure injury, contact our Boca Raton bed sore attorneys today.
- Are falls preventable?
Some falls can be prevented, others cannot. If a resident is at risk for falls, Florida law requires that the facility implement fall preventative measures. If a facility fails to use fall preventative measures appropriately, this can be a form of nursing home negligence. In our experience, many of the falls we see in South Florida nursing homes and ALFs could have, and should have been prevented. In order to determine if your specific fall constitutes nursing home negligence, speak with our Boca nursing home lawyers today.
- What is the best nursing home in Boca Raton?
Nursing homes often change ownership and management, so facilities can change drastically in a short period of time. If you are searching for the best nursing home in Boca, we recommend you utilize Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare site, in addition to a physical site visit and in-person interviews with staff.
- When is the right time to consult with a Boca Raton nursing home abuse attorney?
Generally speaking, the sooner the better. In the aftermath of a nursing home tragedy, records get altered and witnesses forget what they saw. Post-incident records are being created, along with incident investigations. You need a skilled and experienced advocate to protect your interests.
- Why should I choose Senior Justice as my Boca nursing home lawyer? Why not go with a large car accident firm?
Senior Justice is more than our firm name. It is our mission statement. Our lawyers focus on these kinds of cases against nursing homes and assisted living facilities. We receive nursing home abuse case referrals from many of the large advertising car accident firms. Additionally, because this is our primary practice area and we are locally located in Boca, we likely have extensive experience suing the facility you are considering bringing a claim against. Our years of experience and relationships with defense counsel will inevitably help advance your case. Ultimately, you should meet and interview lawyers and choose the one with whom you feel most comfortable.
- How much does it cost to retain your Boca nursing home neglect law firm?
We charge no upfront fees or costs, and you only pay us if we make a recovery for you. You will never be asked to pay our firm for attorneys fees out of pocket. Our fees run from 33.3% to 40% of your settlement or recovery, depending on when the case resolves. There is no charge for our lawyers to investigate your potential claim.
- What is the best way to contact you?
