Nursing home sued after poor resident monitoring leads to death

Choosing to place a loved one in a nursing home can be a difficult decision. That choice can be made even more daunting when one considers the potential safety risks posed by nursing homes. It is not uncommon for nursing home residents to fall victim to bedsores, a nursing home fall, unexplained nursing home bruising brought on by elder abuse, or rapid weight loss. All of these conditions are brought on by nursing home neglect, and Miami residents should be aware of the dangers.

Missed diagnosis leads to delay in cancer treatment

Miami residents have a lot of faith in their doctors. This trust is reasonable since doctors spend years in extensive study and rigorous training. After this intensive grooming, doctors are expected to be able to accurately diagnose and treat illnesses. Unfortunately, all too often these medical professionals violate their patients' trust through a failure to diagnose an illness.

Wrong medication leads to death, medical malpractice suit filed

Medication can be a powerful tool in a patient's healthcare plan. When the correct dosage of a proper medication is used, it can alleviate symptoms of a condition, completely remedy an illness, or prevent a sickness from killing a patient. On the other hand, medication errors can have tragic consequences.

Nursing homes fined for falls, mistreated wounds, other injuries

Nursing homes carry a heavy responsibility: caring for those who cannot be cared for by their loved ones. While many institutions are prepared to fulfill this duty, others fail. When a lapse in care occurs, residents can fall victim to bedsores and other serious injuries. This nursing home neglect is unacceptable, and homes that cause these injuries should be punished and should pay to make victims whole again.
