The Nursing Home Where My Father Was Staying Contacted Me After His Injury And Wants to Ask Me Questions Regarding His Health?

The Nursing Home Where My Father Was Staying Contacted Me No. You are under no obligation to give a representative from a nursing home them any information about the condition of a loved one after an injury or sudden death at their facility.

Why Nursing Homes May Go into Fact Gathering Mode Following an Incident at Their Facility

After an incident involving a patient injury, nursing homes will regularly contact families and ask for additional information about a loved ones medical condition under the guise of trying to get some information about their physical condition.

In some situations, the facility may be attempting to obtain information about loved ones medical condition for the purpose of shifting the blame away from themselves to the patient themselves.

Especially if the injury is severe, where a facility may be anticipating some type of litigation, it may be in your best interest to refrain from providing additional information about your loved one’s condition or medical history.

Unfortunately, episodes of poor care and patient injury have become so common at some nursing homes that staff may have met with attorneys who defend the facility in lawsuits brought against them and this is a tactic suggested to help defend the facility.

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
