Suing Hospice for Injury & Wrongful Death young woman holding an elderly woman's hand

Hospice is traditionally associated with end of life comfort measures, but hospice care is more than just helping someone be pain free as they die. Hospice care is not a death sentence and many patients are put on hospice care, only to be removed once their health condition improves. The important takeaway here is that, whether your family member has an end-stage hospice diagnosis or is planning on making a recovery, no one deserves to be neglected or abused by hospice nurses.

Patients on Hospice are Dying, So Can You Bring an Injury Lawsuit Against Hospice Nurses?

Let’s get something out of the way: we are all dying, every day. A second principle that bears repeating is: no patient deserves to be neglected, abused or injured, whether you have 30 years left or 30 days left. Our patient neglect lawyers have handled several hospice negligence cases over the years. We have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for victims of abuse and neglect that were on hospice. The perceived limited lifespan of the victim may reduce the damages award, but it does not minimize the wrongdoing of the negligent nurse or doctor. Our attorneys have successfully made the argument that all patients deserve appropriate care, even more so those patients who are in the twilight of their life. A preventable hospice injury can ruin the last weeks or months a patient has on this earth, and for that, there is no excuse.

Common Hospice Injuries

Hospice patients are frail and in compromised health to begin with. This means the hospice staff, nurse and doctors must provide extra attention and care when treating or moving the patient. Unfortunately, this appropriate level of hospice care is not always provided, and the results can be tragic.

Frequent hospice injuries resulting in litigation include:

Hospice Neglect Lawsuit

If you believe your loved one was neglected by hospice nurses, do something about the elder abuse. At the very least, report the elder neglect to the appropriate authorities.
