The medical care provided in a care environment is often for vulnerable and elderly patients. Trust is placed in the staff to provide adequate treatment, however when the standard of care falls below an acceptable standard this can result in injury to elderly patients. Examples of such are:
- Administration of incorrect medication resulting in adverse side effects
- Pressure sores or ulcers
- Orthopaedic claims due to falls/failure to diagnose orthopaedic injuries
This can be very distressing for you and your loved one and our dedicated medical negligence team can help.
