Arkansas Nursing Home Infection Lawyers
Personal Attention | Proven Results
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 to 3 million serious infections occur every year in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Those infections include anti-biotic resistant staph infections, respiratory infections, soft tissue infections, urinary tract infections, diarrheal diseases, influenza, and many other types of diseases and infections. Nursing home infections are a serious problem, and they contribute to as many as 380,000 deaths at long-term care facilities every year.
While nursing home residents are already at risk for numerous types of infections, the condition of many long-term care facilities make that problem worse, or unnecessarily expose their residents to infections. Some of the procedures and behaviors that can contribute to nursing home infections are:
- Failure to vaccinate residents and staff.
- Inadequate staffing.
- Inadequate training and oversight of staff.
- Poor hygiene and conditions that leave the nursing home unsanitary.
- Failing to quickly and properly diagnose treatable infections.
- Improper or inadequate cleaning, bathing, and changing.
- Instructing staff to wear proper protective equipment.
- Failing to dispose of waste products in a sanitary manner.
