Infections are a common occurrence in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. The most common infections are those involving the urinary and respiratory tracts, gastrointestinal infections, and infections involving the skin. Of those, urinary tract infections are the most common, and are frequently associated with poor catheter care. Our San Diego nursing home negligence attorneys are available to help you bring a claim against a nursing home that caused this harm to your loved one.
Not all infections can be prevented, but once an infection develops caregivers must be trained to recognize that an infection is present, and take appropriate action.
The injury lawyers at Walton Law Firm have successfully prosecuted San Diego nursing homes and other care facilities in civil courts for failing to prevent infections and failing to properly treat them.
