If you or your loved ones are residing in a Massachusetts residential institution, you have the right to expect a high standard of care that ensures the safety and health of the residents. This includes proper medical treatment and infection control protocols. Nursing homes, in particular, have a responsibility to prevent the spread of contagious illnesses and viruses to their residents.
Unfortunately, some institutions fail to maintain these standards, putting their residents at risk of physical injuries, and even death. At PSRB, we have seen a wide range of injuries sustained at nursing homes, which can be life-threatening, painful, and debilitating. These injuries may require immediate legal intervention to prevent further harm.
Some common examples of injuries that occur in nursing homes are bruises or bed sores, abrasions, cuts, burns, malnutrition or dehydration, and broken bones from falls. We have also seen cases of prescription errors and failures to diagnose or misdiagnose conditions that lead to greater injury or wrongful death.
If you or your loved one has suffered an injury or illness due to the negligence of a residential institution or nursing home, you may be entitled to compensation. At PSRB, we are committed to advocating for the rights of our clients and ensuring they receive the compensation they deserve.
