Coronavirus Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing homes play a crucial role in keeping our loved ones safe when they can no longer care for themselves. However, these facilities have been overwhelmed by cases of the novel coronavirus. Tragically, many residents have lost their lives.

Older adults – particularly those with underlying medical conditions – are at greater risk for severe illness from COVID-19. And with so many residents living in close proximity, nursing homes are a natural target for the virus to spread quickly.

In this critical time, long-term care facilities must take every precaution to protect their residents and front-line employees from being exposed to or contracting COVID-19. Although most nursing homes have done an admirable job in difficult circumstances, some facilities have neglected the well-being of the most vulnerable among us.

If you suspect you or someone you love suffered neglect during the coronavirus pandemic, our attorneys are here to help. Contact us for a free, no-risk case evaluation.

Coronavirus Nursing Home Neglect FAQs

  • What Responsibilities Do Nursing Homes Have During COVID-19?

    Generally, nursing homes are required to take steps to protect and care for their residents, including:

    • Hiring qualified personnel
    • Employing a sufficient number of staff members
    • Training employees
    • Developing comprehensive care plans for residents
    • Ensuring residents receive adequate supervision and assistive devices
    • Treating every resident with dignity and respect

    In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has offered guidance for long-term care facilities to prepare for and respond to the coronavirus outbreak. Key strategies include:

    • Keep COVID-19 out: The CDC instructs nursing homes to restrict visitors, volunteers, and non-essential healthcare personnel. They also recommend actively screening staff, vendors, and anyone else who enters the premises.
    • Identify infections early: Nursing homes should actively screen residents daily for symptoms of COVID-19, isolate symptomatic residents, and notify state or local health departments about suspected and confirmed cases.
    • Prevent the spread of the virus: The CDC says that nursing homes should cancel group activities and communal dining, enforce social distancing, and ensure residents wear a cloth face covering whenever they leave their room.
    • Access and optimize PPE supply: If they anticipate shortages, nursing homes should reach out to local and state health departments for supplies.
    • Identify and manage severe infections: Nursing homes should designate a place to care for residents with suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19, as well as monitor ill residents at least three times a day to identify those who require a higher level of care.

I wish I didn’t have to hire an attorney but my family and I were blessed. We won every single time! Insurance companies truly know that they will take it to court!
