Q. I am positive the bedsores my grandma has are a result of nursing home abuse or negligence but she has dementia and
A: No it’s not necessary if she remembers how she got the sores. In most cases involving a lawsuit against a nursing home the person isn’t able to remember or has unfortunately passed away. The most important piece of evidence will be your mom’s medical records from the facility and what they say.
Q. What are nursing homes required to have in place to prevent falls?
A: Whatever the resident needs to prevent them from falling because there is no one size fits all solution to falls. State and federal regulations require the nursing home to provide the care and assistance needed by the resident to meet their needs. Sometimes bed alarms work. Sometimes they don't. Sometimes more assistance and supervision works. Sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes redirection and resident education work. Sometimes they don't. They way to prevent falls is to address the resident's specific needs and limitations, then implement the necessary care. One solution may work for one resident but not another. And there is no possible way to prevent all falls.
Q. Does the whole family need to be a part of a nursing home lawsuit, or can one member file if they want?
A: It depends. If the case involves a death, all heirs who can inherit by statute must be included. They can be included as nominal defendants, but they still must be named. They don't have to agree with the lawsuit. Obviously, it's better if everyone is on the same page, but sometimes this doesn't happen. If the victim is still alive, one person can file as Power of Attorney, Guardian ad Litem, or Conservator for the abuse victim. Not all family members need to be named if the victim of abuse is still alive.
