Impact of Coronavirus on Nursing Home Patients
We have been contacted by numerous families regarding the legal implications when a loved one acquires Coronavirus during an admission to a skilled nursing facility. At this time, we are reviewing these matters on a case-by-case basis to determine liability on the part of the facility.
While many developments in this pandemic continue to develop, we now understand how the COVID-19 virus is transmitted and safety measures nursing homes can take to drastically reduce the risk of transmission. Knowing this, when facilities fail to implement these safeguards, they may open themselves to liability for damages when patients and staff become ill or even die.
While we continue to watch as this situation unfolds, we welcome you to contact us to discuss your legal rights and options.
We wish you and your family health and security during this time.
