Care home negligence is when the care provided by a care home facility is below acceptable standards. It is care that is so poor no other care home acting professionally would provide such service.
Patients in a care facility come to harm due to care home negligence. It could be a fall when they go to the bathroom unassisted, bed sores from not being cared for properly or even missed signs of infection leading to serious illness.
Whatever type of care home negligence your loved one suffered, there is no excuse for it. The trust you put in the care home and the staff to look after your loved one should not be abused.

Negligence often occurs over time, and one incident may bring a lot of the care home negligence to light.
What is important is to be aware of care home negligence and the different types of it patients can experience.
