Choosing the Best Nursing Facility to Care for Your Loved One
Many families are faced with placing a loved one in a nursing facility on orders of a doctor or as aftercare when released from a hospital. During this time, choosing the best nursing facility can be difficult when the family is concerned of the health and well-being of a loved one with a medical condition that is either evolving or healing.
Nearly every claim or lawsuit filed by family members of a loved one injured in a nursing facility involves abuse or neglect by the medical team. Without proper monitoring, quality nutrition and effective protocols on providing medicines and treatments, a resident in a nursing facility can develop serious complications including bedsores, pneumonia, open wounds or other condition. Facility-acquired bedsores can develop quickly when the patient is not monitored properly, especially nursing home residents who are mobility-challenged and unable to move without assistance.
Daily activities including bathing, eating and physical exercise are important to the health and well-being of the patient. When the nursing facility does not provide adequate stimulation, quality meals or hygiene assistance, the patient can suffer debilitating, life-threatening injuries. Because of that, it is essential to choose the best nursing facility available in the community to protect the loved one in need of medical care.
