Kentucky Coronavirus Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers

Nursing home residents make up a significant portion of Kentucky’s COVID-19 cases, as dozens of facilities have reported positive tests. This trend is alarming, considering the elderly are particularly at risk for severe illness from the novel coronavirus.

In this challenging time, long-term care facilities must do all they can to keep the virus from spreading and affecting residents and front-line workers. Although most nursing homes have done an excellent job responding to the crisis, others have fallen short.

If you suspect a nursing home didn’t take appropriate steps to prepare for or respond to the pandemic and it caused you or a loved one harm, the attorneys at our Kentucky offices are here to help.

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

    Generally speaking, nursing homes can be held legally responsible for any number of failures, including:

    • Negligent hiring
    • Understaffing
    • Inadequate training
    • Medication errors
    • Physical, emotional, or financial abuse
    • Neglect

    In addition, they can be held liable if they fail to appropriately respond to an emergency situation such as a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offered guidelines for nursing homes to protect residents and staff from serious illness and complications due to COVID-19. They include:

    • Restricting volunteers, visitors, and non-essential healthcare personnel
    • Screening residents for symptoms of COVID-19 on a daily basis
    • Isolating symptomatic residents
    • Enforcing social distancing
    • Instructing residents to wear a cloth face covering when around others
    • Designating a space to care for those who have confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19
    • Monitoring ill residents at least three times a day to identify those who may need a higher level of care
  • Contact Morgan & Morgan

    If a nursing home failed to take any of the above measures and it led to you or a loved one getting sick, contact one of our Kentucky offices.
