It is important to research the facilities where you are going to place your loved-ones if the need arises. Most nursing homes do a good job of providing safe environments and appropriate medical care for our loved-ones. Even the best nursing homes make mistakes. Some facilities have a history of providing less than ideal care for our loved-ones. We have also heard the horror stories of loved-ones being neglected, not being monitored properly, and not receiving the proper care they deserve. Nursing home negligence results in death, substantial injury, and/or advancing the degeneration of a loved-one’s health. No one deserves that kind of treatment. It is important to know that claims against nursing homes falls under the category for medical/professional malpractice. Generally speaking, in Ohio these claims must be brought within one (1) year of the date of the incident.
