Burns Suffered In Nursing Homes
Nursing homes and other medical facilities have a duty to protect residents from burns. Nursing home residents are frequently at a higher risk for suffering from burns due to decreased cognitive and physical abilities. Most burns are preventable with appropriate monitoring and care. Issues arise, however, when nursing home residents are not adequately supervised or treated.
Burns are typically related to hot food and drink or cigarettes. If a patient who is unable to eat or drink by himself or herself is left alone, the consequences can be terrible.
If you or a loved one has suffered a significant burn in an Illinois nursing home or hospital, we can help you seek compensation to cover expenses and damages suffered as the result of the nursing home’s negligence.
