Assisted Living Facilities
Injuries at Assisted Living Facilities
In the United States, there are over 35,000 assisted living facilities caring for nearly 1 million adults. Unlike nursing homes, these facilities operate outside the complex scheme of regulations and laws that govern care in those residences. As a result, the staff at assisted living facilities may not have the medical background or knowledge to care for our loved ones. The lack of training may result in the lack of supervision of the needs of our parents and family that have chosen to reside in the facility.
Without the proper supervision, residents may sustain fractures in falls or transports, bedsores for failing to transition the resident and other life threatening injuries.
If you or a loved one has experienced negligent care at an assisted living facility, please contact assisted living facility attorney Mike Sudekum for a free consultation of your legal options. For your convenience, you may reach him at 314-621-1701 or via the online contact us page.
