Did A Home Health Care Worker Break Your Trust?

Millions of people across the nation put their trust in home health care professionals and companies that are responsible for ensuring the health and safety of their patients under their care. Home health care nurses and personal care attendants can be lifesavers for people under their care and the families that rely on them. Unfortunately, many of these professionals are poorly trained and are often unqualified for the level of professional care expected of them.

If you or a loved one in your family has suffered an injury while under the care of a home health care provider, or because of a self-administered home health care product that was defective or unsafe for use, the attorneys at DeLuca & Weizenbaum in Providence are ready to help.

  • Lack of attention, neglect of patient's needs

What If You Don't Think You Can Prove Anything?

It may seem as if proving your case against a home health care professional or contracted company comes down to your word against your care providers. In fact, documentation requirements for visiting nurses and care providers are very substantial. Lack of documentation is also a form of negligence. Medical records must be kept up to date and information must be recorded accurately. By reviewing the records, we can often determine whether the expected level of professional care has been met.
