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 the patient. Home health nurses and aids are held to the same or similar standards of care as nursing homes and hospitals.
Home health caregivers have a duty to treat their patients with the same proper care and respect so injuries are prevented. We see claims for bedsores, falls, improper medication, medical malpractice, failure to refer patients for further medical care, and a variety of other issues.
