Kentucky Nursing Home Burns
Has your loved one suffered a burn injury in a Kentucky nursing home? Nursing home residents rely upon staff members to help them with activities of daily living. Due to physical restrictions it is often difficult for residents to move around on their own, feed themselves, use the bathroom or bathe without some level of assistance. In some instances, Kentucky nursing homes are understaffed, and as a result even the most caring nursing home workers have trouble attending to all of the residents who are under their care. When staff members are stretched thin and cannot provide the appropriate level of care, it is more likely that accidents will happen and residents will suffer injuries.
Burn injuries as a result of nursing home negligence do occur. Some examples include Kentucky nursing home residents that are (1) burned smoking without proper supervision, (2) burned by scalding bath water, (3) burned by overheated food or drinks, (4) burned by hot water spills and (5) burned in fires at the nursing home.
When residents suffer life-altering or fatal burn injuries due to nursing home negligence or abuse, families may seek justice to hold wrongdoers accountable. Nursing home lawsuits not only help victims seek compensation for the harms caused to them, they also send a message to facilities that abuse and neglect will not go unnoticed.
