Our growing elderly population depends more and more on institutional care for various reasons. Nursing liability is set by both federal and state regulations and nursing homes must adhere to these legal standards that regulate the quality of care. Unfortunately many times standards are breached and suffering or even death results.
The Keenan Law Firm has prosecuted in a number of nursing home liability cases, dealing primarily with patient neglect caused by under-staffing, inattention, or inadequate staff training. One nursing liability client eventually testified before the U.S. Congress to help shape important nursing home regulations.
