Negligence in Oklahoma City Nursing Homes
Oklahoma City Medical Malpractice Attorney
Medical malpractice in nursing homes and assisted living facilities is an important issue to consider. These facilities are required to treat patients with the level of care they need, and this includes things like nutrition, hygiene and medical treatment. Unfortunately, some nursing homes are understaffed or have caregivers who are untrained or simply careless. This leaves the door wide open for instances of medical malpractice and serious harm to elderly patients.
