Failure to Follow Care Plans and Monitor

Does Your Loved One Show Signs of Neglect Such as Broken Bones or Malnutrition?

When nursing homes fail to follow care plans or properly monitor residents, serious injuries can result — such as fractured hips and broken bones, medication errors, malnutrition or dehydration and even wrongful death.

When you suspect a loved one is not being properly monitored or cared for, we can help. For 40 years, the nursing home neglect attorneys at Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., have helped injured New Yorkers hold nursing homes and assisted living providers accountable for negligence and abuse in the Bronx and Brooklyn and throughout New York. We put that knowledge and experience to work for you. To learn more, contact us online via e-mail or call 212-750-1200. We fight, you win.

Failure to Follow Care Plans

Nursing home care plans outline the care that each individual resident requires, based on that individual's specific needs. Typically, family members meet with nurses, doctors, dietitians and other staff to discuss their loved one's specific needs. The group decides what type of care is needed for the individual to participate in daily activities. A care plan specifies this care and who will be responsible for it — such as who will help at mealtimes, what medication needs to be administered and when, and who will assist with the resident's mobility. Does your loved one need help eating? Can he or she walk unassisted?

Care plans must be carefully documented, and everyone involved in the patient's care (family members included) must read the plan and follow it. If a patient's needs change, the care plan should be updated accordingly.

Failure to Monitor Nursing Home Residents

In addition to following care plans, nursing homes are required to provide proper supervision and monitoring of residents. Without adequate supervision, residents who suffer from dementia, Alzheimer's or other physical or mental impairments have a high risk of being injured. Nursing home residents who are not properly monitored could be injured after:

  • Wandering off
  • Slipping and falling in a nursing home
  • Being exposed to bad weather
  • Remaining immobile for long periods (leading to bedsores)
