Tulsa Nursing Home Unsanitary Conditions Lawyer
Compassionate Legal Help for Tulsa Nursing Home Residents Harmed By Lack of Sanitary Conditions
Nursing homes have a responsibility to provide for residents’ basic needs. That responsibility includes providing residents with safe, sanitary conditions. We expect nursing homes to provide these basic needs to our elderly and disabled loved ones. If a nursing home fails to grant our loved ones a sanitary and hygienic environment, they are more likely to contract an illness or aggravate a malady they already possess. Nursing home residents are already vulnerable, and nursing homes must not be permitted to get away with such negligence at the expense of our family members.
If you or anyone you know is a resident in a Tulsa nursing home and is being subject to unsanitary and unsafe conditions, call the dedicated nursing home unsanitary conditions lawyers at Levinson Law, P.C. We know the law and the health standards to which nursing homes must adhere, and we know how to hold nursing homes accountable if they violate those standards. Let us help you protect your loved ones and recover for any harm caused by nursing home abuse or neglect.
Holding Nursing Homes Liable for Unsanitary Conditions
If your loved one is in a nursing home or other long-term care facility that is not maintaining clean, sanitary premises, you and your elderly family member may have a claim for relief. Nursing home residents have the right to clean linens, clean clothes, and clean bodies. When nursing homes fail to provide these basic needs, they may be open to legal action. Failing to ensure sanitary conditions is a form of elder abuse or neglect under both state and federal laws, and if a resident is harmed as a result of unsanitary conditions, the resident and their family may have a claim for relief.
If you or someone you know has been subjected to unsanitary conditions in a Tulsa nursing home, call the nursing home unsanitary conditions attorneys at Levinson Law, P.C., to discuss your circumstances. Nursing homes may be liable if they do any of the following:
- Fail to regularly clean residents’ clothes, towels, and bedding
- Fail to clean residents’ rooms and bathrooms
- Fail to help residents who need assistance with bathing, oral hygiene, or other cleanliness
- Fail to protect residents from health and safety hazards
- Fail to keep the common areas and general premises clean and sanitary
- Allow mold to grow, or pests such as rats and cockroaches to invade
Failing to provide sanitary conditions for residents puts those residents in danger of severe and irreparable physical and psychological harm. They are at higher risk for developing infections, and their overall immune systems can weaken as well. The nursing home unsanitary conditions lawyers at Levinson Law, P.C., are ready to help you hold negligent nursing homes accountable if your loved one has suffered due to sanitation issues.
