Unfortunately, not all care homes look after you or your loved ones the way they should. This can lead to serious physical and mental health problems for you or your loved ones. When standards of care fall to an unacceptable level, this is likely to amount to negligence. As a result, you may be able to make a compensation claim for care home negligence.
Taking action when care home negligence occurs is vital to making sure that future standards of care improve and for justice to be achieved.
Examples of Care Home Neglect include:
It is a disgraceful fact that according to figures obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, more than 1,000 care home residents have died from dehydration over the last decade. This is a totally unacceptable state of affairs.
It is a basic human right to receive food and water when under the care of a medical professional. Death due to dehydration is something that should never happen when a person is in the care of a professional.
Many care charities are now campaigning for a complete overhaul of the care home system. They are trying to ensure that care home patients are protected and provided with the basic care as a minimum.
