Unsanitary Nursing Home Conditions Are Unacceptable
A nursing home or assisted living facility has a responsibility to ensure that its buildings, facilities and equipment are safe and clean. If not, elderly residents could suffer serious accidents that result in personal injury, infection or even wrongful death. If your loved one has suffered injury or illness due to unsanitary conditions, you should contact a Massachusetts nursing home abuse attorney as soon as possible.
The Law Offices of Joseph J. Cariglia, P.C., represents victims of elder abuse and their families throughout Massachusetts. We believe in holding caregivers and nursing home administrators accountable for negligence in their facilities by helping clients pursue maximum compensation for the pain and suffering their loved ones have endured.
A Clean, Safe Home For Your Elderly Relatives
Nursing homes and other facilities that provide medical care are required to follow strict standards to ensure the health and safety of their residents. We stand up for victims who have suffered injuries from:
- Bedbugs, roaches, spiders and other insects
- Falls in nursing homes due to improperly maintained pathways, stairways, ramps, guardrails and other equipment used to maintain safe premises
- Wandering off due to broken locks, defective alarm systems or lack of security
- Food-borne illnesses
- Infections caused by nonsterilized equipment
- Illness caused by prescription errors, outdated medicines or misdiagnosis
If you notice signs of unsanitary conditions, chances are there may be other problems with maintenance and upkeep that you are unaware of. We get right to work investigating all evidence of negligent maintenance and disregard for safety. We aggressively represent clients in settlement negotiation and do not let them settle for less than they deserve. If necessary, we will go to trial.
