A Trusted Small Business Working To Protect Your Professional Practice And Your Business

Skillful, Successful Nursing Home Negligence Defense

If your facility has been sued or has received notice of a deficiency, you understand how important it is to defend the reputation and record of your nursing home.

The Long Lasting Effects Of A Poor Rating

Once you receive notice of a deficiency, citation, or a letter of complaint, you should immediately enlist the support and defense of a strong and skilled legal team. Protection at the onset can preserve the operations, reputation and future of your nursing home and staff.

Residents or their families may raise complaints or inquiries if an elderly loved one has bedsores or has fallen. Concerns that a loved one wasn’t fully or properly cared for can grow into full-blown allegations of nursing home negligence, medical malpractice and even wrongful death.

Any allegations of nursing home abuse and/or neglect can have immediate and long-term negative effects on staff and operations. Many times miscommunication or misunderstanding of health care procedures and limitations by family members lead to these claims of nursing home malpractice, and the sooner the concern or complaint is addressed the better.

Strong And Experienced Defense Against Negligence And Malpractice Claims

At The Tarantino Law Firm, LLP, we understand the damage that can result from claims made against a nursing home or staff member. Our mission is to ensure that elder care facilities are fully protected from harmful, and often unfounded, claims of neglect, abuse or mistreatment.

Nursing home malpractice is defined as any “intentional act or negligence causing physical, mental or psychosocial harm” to a resident in a nursing home facility by a care provider. Evidence must be provided that the act directly caused harm to the nursing home resident. We will assess the basis for the allegation, whether such evidence exists and if it can be proven that any action on the part of staff directly caused harm or not.
