Delaware Nursing Home Negligence, Injury & Abuse Laws
As all states do Delaware has many laws related to nursing homes and the level of care they provide. In addition, Delaware also has to adhere to federal nursing home laws. Delaware nursing home caretakers, while skilled and usually highly trained, are not typically medical professionals. Unfortunately, the elder care industry is a stressful and emotionally draining industry with a very high turnover rate. Even in the best of facilities, stress can lead to poor employee screening and failure to properly monitor vulnerable patients can result in serious injuries to elder residents. These injuries are very serious and can include:
- Bedsores or pressure sores (also known as decubitus ulcers)
- Deep vein thrombosis / blood clots
- Ignoring doctor’s orders
- Sexual Assault
- Verbal or Physical Abuse
- Financial manipulation
