COVID-19 And Nursing Home Neglect

As COVID-19 ravaged the nation and the world, nowhere was harder hit than our nursing homes. While most nursing homes did everything they could to protect vulnerable residents, not all stood up to the challenge. In some cases, negligent coronavirus policies led to disease, suffering and even wrongful death.

At Salim-Beasley, LLC, we stand up for abused and neglected nursing home residents in Natchitoches and throughout Louisiana. If COVID-19 has caused a loved one’s suffering or death, we sympathize. If this tragedy could have been prevented if only proper policies and procedures had been followed, we are here to offer legal support.

Could This Have Been Prevented?

The coronavirus outbreak has hit all areas in Louisiana, from Shreveport to New Orleans. For many family members who have lost loved ones to COVID-19 in nursing homes, a vexing question remains: Could this death have been prevented?

Nursing homes have strict protocols for distancing, sanitizing living areas and isolating infected residents and staff members. Lapses in these policies have had tragic consequences. A single instance of negligent security, failure to screen or failure to isolate could infect dozens upon dozens of helpless residents. In order to obtain justice for the victims and prevent further tragedies of this nature, negligent parties must be identified and held accountable.

Our law firm has the investigative resources to uncover the causes of COVID-19 outbreaks in nursing homes throughout the state.
