Coronavirus Nursing Home Neglect in Georgia

Nursing homes across the country have been overwhelmed by the coronavirus pandemic. Here in Georgia, thousands of residents and staff have contracted the virus, and hundreds of residents have lost their lives.

Long-term care facilities serve an essential role in protecting the health and safety of our loved ones. That responsibility is only heightened in a time like this. The elderly are most at risk for severe illness and death from the novel coronavirus, so it’s incumbent on these facilities to do everything in their power to stop the virus from entering the premises and spreading.

Although most Georgia nursing homes have done an excellent job given difficult circumstances, some have neglected the well-being of their occupants and staff. 

If you suspect negligence on the part of a long-term care facility during the coronavirus outbreak, contact us for a free, no-risk case evaluation.

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

    No matter the circumstance, long-term care facilities are required to take certain measures to protect and look after their residents. Among others, they must hire qualified personnel, employ enough staff to provide sufficient care, and train all employees.

    These facilities must also take various steps to prepare and respond to the coronavirus outbreak. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) outlined several strategies:

    • Restrict visitors, volunteers, and non-essential healthcare personnel
    • Screen anyone who enters the premises
    • Screen residents daily for symptoms of COVID-19
    • Isolate symptomatic residents, and notify the appropriate health departments
    • Implement and enforce social distancing measures
    • Instruct residents to wear a cloth face covering when they leave their room
    • Reach out to local and state health departments for PPE supplies
    • Designate a space to care for residents with confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19
    • Monitor ill residents at least three times a day to identify those who need higher level care
