Nursing Home Abuse Cases
Nursing home abuse case is intentional treatment, mistreatment or non-treatment of a patient by nursing or rest home personnel which results in injury and harm to a patient. While nursing home negligence claims arise out of harm caused by someone's carelessness or unintentional conduct, abuse claims stem from someone's intentional disregard for a patient's safety or rights. The attorneys of Accident Recovery Team represent patients who have suffered injuries as the result of both types of conduct. Medical malpractice is an act or omission by a health care provider which deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury to the patient or substantial loss of income. Simply put, medical malpractice is professional negligence (by a healthcare provider) that causes an injury.
Just because you sign a consent form when treatment is received does not give the health care provider the right to commit malpractice. Even though you or someone you know accepts the stated risks and complications that may arise from a procedure or treatment doesn't relieve any medical provider - whether an Emergency Room doctor, Attending Physician, Psychiatrist or other health care provider - from their health care responsibilities to provide a standard of care associated with your medical treatment or health care.
