Types of Improper Medical Treatment in Nursing Homes

Physicians and nurses are required to uphold the accepted medical standard of care as part of their job duty. A breach of this standard can pose a serious threat to the patient’s health. When a medical practitioner operates below the standard of care that is widely recognized by the medical field, they are acting out of line and should be reprimanded for their negligence or carelessness. Below are some of the common types of improper medical treatment that nursing home practitioners carry out:

  • Failing to prescribe the proper medications or treatments
  • Acting outside of the medical industry’s health and safety protocols
  • Failing to diagnose or wrongfully diagnosing a health condition
  • Mistreating a patient
  • Performing an unnecessary surgery
  • Leaving tools or equipment in the body after surgery

The responsible physician and the nursing home can be held liable for carrying out any of the above actions against a nursing home resident. By not abiding by the appropriate standards, a physician or nurse is prolonging a patient’s pain or potentially worsening their condition. When this occurs, the patient can be put in danger, and their health could rapidly degenerate.
