Nursing Home Negligence / Covid-19
There are well over 1000 licensed nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities located throughout California. Many of these facilities do an outstanding job caring for their elderly and disabled residents. Others, however, negligently fail to meet even the minimum standards required by state and federal law. Nursing home negligence often results in serious injuries ranging from broken and fractured bones, life threatening bedsores, malnutrition related illness, and in some cases premature death.
The Covid-19 / Novel Coronavirus pandemic has posed a special threat to the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions. Nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities accepting Medicare and Medicaid (aka Medi-Cal in California) patients are legally required to take reasonable and medically sound precautions to prevent the spread of infectious disease in their facilities, and in some cases the failure to do so has resulted in unnecessary suffering and death.
