New Jersey Lawyer For Nursing Home Lack Of Communication

Far too often, family members are intentionally kept in the dark about the true nature of their loved ones injuries, illnesses or worsening conditions. Nursing homes, hospitals and assisted living facilities have a duty to inform loved ones when something goes wrong. Many times, the colloquial phrase — the cover up is worse than the crime — is never more true.

"I just want to know what happened."

At The Gough Law Firm, LLP, we understand that family members have a right to an explanation when something goes wrong. There is an expectation of communication, and those lines of communication should be open at all times. We will fight to uncover the answers to your questions and find out what really happened to your loved one.

Failure To Inform Family Members

It is not uncommon for facilities to 'hold back' information in order to protect themselves. For example, if an elderly loved one has fallen and sustains an injury, what happens if a nurse simply puts the resident back in bed? The injury, belatedly will be discovered and treated, while the actual occurrence has been hidden. Such conduct is reprehensible. We will hold a nursing home accountable for such conduct and intentional lapses in communication.
