How to File a Claim Against a Nursing Home

The State of Florida has many elderly people living in nursing homes. The trend of lawsuits being filed against nursing homes is a relatively new phenomenon. A recent web survey created to determine which states account for the largest share of these claim types in the country identified two states: Texas and Florida. These two states account for about 50% of claims filed nationwide. The biggest reason why Florida ranks as one of the states with the highest number of litigations filed against nursing homes can partly be explained by the stringent laws that protect the rights of nursing home residents in the state. Among them is the right for nursing home residents to receive sufficient medical care, privacy, therapeutic services, rehabilitative services, dignity, courtesy, and freedom from both physical and mental abuse.

Any person or organization, and not just the resident’s family members, can file a claim against a nursing home. There are many grounds on which you can file complaints, including mistreatment, unsafe conditions, lack of adequate staffing, poor care, improper charges, failure to readmit the resident after being discharged from a hospital, and concerns about transfers and discharges, to name a few. You can file your complaint in writing or through a simple phone call.
