Unless you get into a severe collision that draws emergency responders to the scene, you may not know if or when you should go to the doctor following a car accident. Maybe your provider has limited availability or you do not have health insurance right now. What do you do?
One issue that might affect residents in a San Antonio area nursing home or retirement community involves medication. Many seniors take prescription drugs to maintain their health, manage symptoms and alleviate discomfort. Nursing homes and retirement communities must provide their residents with the care and assistance to ensure their daily needs and medical care are met. Unfortunately, some facilities fall short of this obligation, exposing their residents to abuse and neglect.
After a car accident, one of the things you have to do is notify your insurance provider. The other driver will also notify his or her insurer. You may think that what will naturally follow is each company compensating you for the accident, especially when it is not your fault.
If you have a loved one who you may soon need to place in a nursing home or assisted living facility, you probably want to do everything in your power to see that the care he or she will ultimately receive is top-notch. Regrettably, however, many nursing homes suffer from chronic understaffing, and this can have a considerable effect on the level of care your loved one will receive.
