Compensation for inadequate care home maintenance
In general there may come a time in life where a person is no longer able to look after themselves and at this point they may require additional help from another person – and may end up being cared for in a care home. In most situations these homes are equipped and maintained to the highest standards right across the board, but unfortunately this is not always the case, and in some situations you could find that you are the victim of inadequate care home maintenance.
By law, anyone who works in a care home has a right and responsibility to look after the patients in their care, and if this hasn’t been done and you or someone you know has been the victim as a result, you could look to make a compensation claim here to cover your costs.
What are some common examples of inadequate care home maintenance?
Inadequate care home maintenance can happen in a number of different situations, but some common examples here of where you might look at making a claim include:
· Claims for malnutrition
· Claims for unhygienic food preparation and food poisoning
· Claims for unsanitary living conditions
· Claims for poorly maintained care home buildings
· Claims for a lack of cleaning and appropriate building maintenance.
Who could have been responsible for this?
In general, any issues that you suffer from in a care home are directly the responsibility of care home staff who are responsible for ensuring your welfare while you stay with them. By law it’s their responsibility to look after anyone in their care and ensure that they receive any treatment that they might need and if they fail to do this then you could consider a compensation claim against them.
