Blue Bell, PA – COVID-19 and its variants have significantly affected Americans. 100,000 are being diagnosed daily and over 600,000 have lost their lives. While 60% of Americans have been vaccinated, 40% continue to either delay being vaccinated or may not be able to acquire the vaccine due to medical conditions or religious beliefs.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created enormous pressure on the entire health care system, but possibly the most tragic impact has been on the nursing home systems. Nursing homes have been a major hotspot throughout the pandemic where over 200,000 nursing home residents and staff have died due to COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, per the CDC. It is absolutely heartbreaking to see the ravishing toll that COVID-19 has had on residents and staff of long-term care facilities. Families that have lost loved ones in these facilities question the adequacy of safety protocols put into place, the availability of vaccines and testing, and the recognition of the COVID diagnosis in acceptable time frames for treatment. Families have had to endure severe restrictions on visitation while many residents were left to suffer extreme treatment, including hospitalization, while many died alone, never to see their families again.
While lawsuits have increased regarding these deaths, the importance of each nursing facilities’ policies and procedures, along with documentation is of critical value. Therefore, it is essential and even prudent for an attorney concerned with a lawsuit to request the assistance of a medical expert witness to identify obvious failures in the systems. Nurse professionals that have worked in either a long-term or an acute care facility are experienced and well-versed in targeting documentation issues and negligent safety standards. Unfortunately, many of these problem areas will be exposed by consultants that may have saved lives.
