Many elderly people have either full or part-time home health nurses or aids who administer medicine, bathe, monitor, assist to the bathroom, or otherwise care for them. Home health nurses and aids are held to the same or similar standards of care for nursing homes and hospitals.
Home health caregivers have a duty to treat their patients with proper care and respect to prevent injuries. We see claims for bedsores, falls, improper medication, medical malpractice, failure to refer patients for further medical care, and a variety of other issues.
