Large amounts of nursing homes here in Texas are understaffed, creating a situation where the nurses are stretched too thin in the activities. Many of the residents have mental health issues that require extensive attention and can be challenging to deal with. The common person would expect the homes to just hire additional nurses to pick up some of the work, but in practice the nursing homes have decided on a cheaper, more sinister solution.
If your loved one sustained injury due to nursing home negligence, pursuing a personal injury lawsuit may form the best option for obtaining proper compensation.
When our loved ones are in the care of a nursing home or hospital facility, we expect that the doctors, nurses and other staff members will be compassionate, attentive and treat patients with dignity. Tragically, this does not always happen.
