Sometimes Medical Complications, Such as Bed Sores, are not Disclosed Until the Patient is Seen at a Hospital
By Nursing Home Law Center
Some of my angriest clients contact me after a loved one was transferred from a nursing home to another nursing home or hospital only to learn of serious medical problems their loved one likely acquired during their original admission.
Of course, breaking disappointing news is difficult for anyone to do. Yet, in the case of nursing homes – this is something they simply are required to do under the law. Similarly, nursing homes must notify the patients doctor if their condition deteriorates.
