Causes of Nursing Home Wrongful Death
Neglect is one of the most common reasons for wrongful death in a nursing home. Nursing home neglect comes in many forms, including the following:
- Malnutrition. Malnutrition happens when staff or a facility fails to provide enough food, nutritionally needed foods, or monitor the food intake of residents
- Dehydration. Nursing homes that do not ensure a regular source of liquid both during and between meals and neglect to note residents consume liquids can cause dehydration and wrongful death to residents
- Elopement. Elopement occurs when residents with cognitive decline or disease wander from a facility resulting in harm or death to the resident
- Medication errors. When nursing homes do not manage, dispense, or monitor resident medications, severe illness and death may result
- Physical neglect. Residents with untreated, minor health problems, and unmet physical needs quickly decline and become critically ill
Any one, or a combination of the above, may lead to the wrongful death of a nursing home resident.
