This is not supposed to happen. When an individual (or their family) places a loved one in the care of a nursing home, you should be able to rest easy at night, knowing the individual is safe and secure.
Sharon Christie is one of Maryland's premier medical malpractice attorneys, in my opinion. She is the author of several books. If you are contemplating filing a medical malpractice claim, particularly against a nursing home, contact Sharon Christie and get her book.
