Nursing Home – Assisted Living – Failure to Diagnose and Treat

Worcester Nursing Home Untreated Infection Lawyer

It’s an unfortunate reality that most people who reside in nursing homes or assisted living facilities have health problems. At times staff and personnel at these facilities do not adequately address resident complaints. Often their own doctor no longer sees them and they have the doctor affiliated with the nursing home step in. Many older people needlessly suffer from injury or illness that could effectively be treated. If your loved one has experienced pain or illness because of the failure of a nursing home or its staff to properly diagnose or treat a condition, you want an experienced attorney to help you get full and fair compensation for their losses.

Flynn Law Firm, PC, with offices in Wellesley and other locations throughout Massachusetts, provides more than 35 years of legal experience to people throughout the Metro West area in Massachusetts. The firm’s practice includes serving individuals who have needlessly suffered due to the failure by nursing home personnel to diagnose or treat an injury or illness.

Protecting Victims of Nursing Home Staff Negligence

Nurses, certified nursing assistants and other health care professionals do their job to help patients. But errors do occur. And sometimes serious injury or death ensues. Flynn Law Firm is equipped to pursue full and fair compensation for all types of claims related to or arising out of failure to diagnose in nursing homes, including failing to take reasonable steps to identify:

  • Fractures or broken bones — Because of decreased mobility, nursing home and assisted living facility residents are more susceptible to falls, which can result in broken bones. When a caregiver fails to diagnose a fracture, Attorney Robert H. Flynn will prepare an effective claim for compensation.
  • Infections — Infections are fairly common in nursing homes and assisted living facilities but are often missed because of improper staffing or simple neglect.
  • Emergency situations — The firm handles cases where a nursing home resident requires emergency room care, but the nursing home does not do a referral option to resolve the situation in-house.
  • Wrongful death — These are among the few instances in Massachusetts when punitive damages may be assessed to punish and deter future wrongs of the type that took a life. The firm will look to pursue punitive damages in order to prevent these situations.
