Fighting For Justice And Your Best Interests

Home Health Care Provider Malpractice Representation

Home health care providers offer a valuable service by allowing patients to remain in their homes despite medical needs, enabling them to retain much of their normal lives. However, negligence by these providers can lead to serious injuries and complications. When a home health care provider engages in malpractice, it can take skilled legal action to hold them accountable.

At Slater Law, LLC, our Iowa attorneys are dedicated to seeking justice for patients harmed by home health care provider malpractice. Pursuing these claims on your own can be challenging, which is why we are here to guide you through every step of your claim, starting with identifying the negligence your loved one experienced.

Identifying Negligence In Home Health Care

Negligence can be a hard thing to spot in only a few visits to your loved one’s home. When a client comes to us for help, we take the time to review their claim for common signs that might indicate negligence, including:

  • Poorly trained staff: Caregivers who lack proper training or qualifications to handle a patient’s specific medical needs can cause serious harm.
  • Inadequate monitoring: Insufficient supervision or monitoring can lead to missed medical issues or emergencies.
  • Medication errors: Incorrect dosage or medication administration can result in severe health complications.
  • Falls: Improperly setup home environments or lack of assistance can lead to dangerous falls.
  • Bedsores: Neglecting to reposition bedridden patients can cause painful and potentially life-threatening bedsores.

These forms of negligence can have devastating consequences for patients, including increased medical issues and a decline in their overall health. If you have noticed signs like these in your loved one, reach out to us for the next steps in the claims process.
