Cleveland Nursing Home Malnutrition Lawyers
Did Your Loved One Suffer Due to Malnutrition or Dehydration?
The Ohio Nursing Home Resident Bill of Rights stipulates that every resident of nursing homes in the state must be provided with a proper diet of food and liquid that is in accordance with their specific care plan. The meals are to be adequate in order to meet the nutritional needs of the patient, according to their medical needs and accepted standards of care.
If your loved one is exhibiting signs of malnutrition or dehydration, these may be symptoms of a medical condition that reduces the appetite. They may also be warning signs, however, that an overworked staff is not able to stay on top of your loved one's personal health plan. Ignoring nutritional needs in order to cut corners makes the management company liable for damages for medical treatment and pain and suffering. In the event of gross negligence, significant punitive damages may also be awarded.
The right team is the one that defends your loved one’s rights aggressively, knowledgeably, and effectively. At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP, we offer tough advocacy for the injured. Our Cleveland nursing home malnutrition lawyers can help if you or your loved one has been injured in a long-term care facility.
We encourage you to contact our office for helpful support and counsel regarding a potential nursing home malnutrition / dehydration case.
