Care Home Negligence

Whilst we accept that, overall, people receive a good standard of nursing and residential care, unfortunately there continue to be far too many incidents involving residents receiving care that falls below the reasonable standard that they are entitled to expect.

There are predominantly two different types of care home in the UK;

Residential Care Homes

Vary in size from very small homes with few beds to large-scale facilities.

Offer care and support, day and night.

Staff assist residents with washing, dressing and with using the bathroom. NURSING HOMES

Normally offer the same type of care as residential homes.

With the addition of 24-hour medical care from a qualified nurse.

Examples of Care Home Negligence

Care home negligence predominantly falls into the following categories:

Emotional or social neglect

Medical neglect

Basic needs neglect

Personal hygiene neglect Failures within these categories can include:

Inadequate assistance with or lack of regular bathing, washing and cleaning

Inadequate food or water provision leading to dehydration and malnutrition

Inadequate lifting aids, which can cause injury and harm

Incorrect/failure to provide medication or medical care when required

Not providing clean bedding and clothing

Preventing pressure sores or pressure ulcers from developing or failing to treat any which are already in existence

Preventing falls, which can cause a fracture or injury to the head and back

Making the decision to place a relative or family member into a care home is an extremely difficult and sensitive one, particularly in cases where you are making the decision on their behalf.

Your relative has put their trust and confidence in you to choose a home which will provide them with a good standard of care and support. If this does not materialise, it can put a huge amount of stress and anxiety on the whole family.

At Collingbourne Hennah Law LLP, we are here to challenge the level of care received and to bear the burden for you. We will provide a voice to ensure your complaint is heard and, in some cases, obtain legal compensation for the injury or harm suffered.

If you believe you qualify to make a claim, contact us today for us to assess the merits of your case on 01633 262848.
