Why A Sanitary Nursing Home Is Important
Unfortunately, not everyone who runs a nursing home is qualified to do so. If someone you care about has been the victim of negligent nursing home staff, call TSR Injury Law at (612) TSR-TIME or submit our free contact form.
The Importance of a Sanitary Environment
At the very least, a nursing home should provide the following for all patients:
- Clean clothes and bedding
- Sleeping and eating quarters free of roaches, mice, and other pests
- Proper measures to prevent the spread of lice
- Clean floors clear of clutter, liquid, and other slip and fall hazards
- Staff well-trained in assisting residents with their personal hygiene
Unlike isolated cases of abuse or neglect, unhygienic conditions in nursing care are usually a systemic problem. In other words, they are not a case of one or two reckless nursing home workers. Instead, the problem usually lies with the way the home is managed, from hiring new workers to supervising them, to setting cleanliness standards for the facility.
As a result, filing a legal claim against the home in question is often the only way to adequately address the problem. It will not only help you win fair compensation for your family’s suffering, but it will also protect other residents of that facility. A Minneapolis nursing home abuse lawyer can provide you with important information about this legal process.
