Nursing Home Malpractice and Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing Home Malpractice Lawyer James Keim fights to hold nursing homes and assisted living facilities accountable for the harm they cause to our seniors. Nursing home malpractice often goes undetected because the nursing home corporation goes to great lengths to cover up their misdeeds. In fact, it is estimated that up to 80% of all nursing home charts contain “chart fraud,” or the false recording of care or services that were never actually provided to the patient. Often times, the death of a loved one may seem suspicious to their family, and it is only after a forensic review of the chart is conducted that we are able to determine that the cause of death was due to a nursing error, nursing home negligence or nursing home malpractice. If you suspect that a nursing home is responsible for the death or injury caused to a loved one and want answers, please do not hesitate to call me for a free, confidential consultation at (941) 485-7600. As an experienced nursing home malpractice lawyer in Venice, I can answer your questions and assist you and your family in obtaining justice and accountability for the harms and losses resulting from nursing home negligence.
Nursing Malpractice and Nursing Negligence
Nurses working at nursing homes, assisted living facilities or as nurse practitioners who travel to these facilities to see patients have a professional duty to provide care that meets or exceeds the applicable standard of care. The question is this: Did the nurse act appropriately under the circumstances? Nurses are trained to follow a basic nursing process that requires that they assess, plan care, implement interventions, monitor the patient and promptly report significant changes in condition to the physician. A failure or breakdown along the line in this nursing process can have devastating consequences for a patient. If you believe that you or a loved one has suffered as a result of nursing malpractice or nursing negligence, please give me a call for a free, confidential consultation at (941) 485-7600. As an experienced nursing malpractice lawyer in Venice, I can answer your questions and assist you and your family in obtaining justice and accountability for the harms and losses resulting from nursing negligence.
Other Professional Malpractice
Other professionals commit malpractice when they fail to use the degree of care that a fellow professional would consider reasonable and use under the same or similar circumstances. Professionals, including accountants, lawyers, nurses, bankers, trust officers, insurance agents, real estate agents, title company representatives and others who are required to exercise professional judgment or skill may be liable for economic loss and damages under Florida law.
