PROTECTING VICTIMS OF NURSING HOME DEHYDRATION
Even though many seniors have difficulty taking in sufficient fluids because of swallowing disorders or other problems, nursing homes have a duty to take reasonable and appropriate measures to ensure proper hydration. Failure to do so can result in organ failure, shock or coma.
Nursing homes have the knowledge and resources to monitor hydration levels, including tests that indicate sodium, white blood cell and blood urea nitrogen levels. The failure to do so often stems from understaffing, employee negligence or carelessness, poorly qualified employees, or lack of proper training.
We handle all types of injury claims related to dehydration, including situations involving urinary tract infections, pneumonia, dementia, and bedsores or decubitus ulcers. We will also represent family members in wrongful death claims.
We take all personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis. You will not be charged any attorney fees unless we are able to recover compensation for your injuries.
