How Did COVID-19 Get Into Nursing Homes & Senior Care Centers?

This is the question on everyone’s mind right now. Nursing homes and senior care centers knew that the people they serve were among those most at-risk if they contracted coronavirus, and their administrators should have had safety plans in place to prevent their population from contracting the deadly disease.

In many facilities, these plans were either not implemented or they were not adhered to.

If you recently lost a loved one to COVID-19 while they were living in a nursing home or senior care facility, The Barnes Firm could help you gain closure. Our best coronavirus lawyer is available 24/7 to help you go over your legal options and gain closure.

Our Coronavirus Lawyer

The Barnes Firm has been following the situation involving COVID-19 since day one, and we were shocked and appalled when news broke that some organizations such as nursing homes and senior care facilities didn’t take necessary precautions to help protect their patients and residents.

Those organizations have a duty of care, and in many cases, that duty was neglected. Our team thinks that’s wrong, and we’re standing-up for those families who’ve suffered the loss of a loved one.

Nursing homes should have been safe havens for many older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, many were exposed to the deadly illness and wrongfully lost their lives.

These negligent organizations must be held accountable for their actions.

Step 2

The second step requires a complete investigation of a nursing home or senior care facility.  This investigation will be a deep-dive into many of the questions you may share following the sudden loss of a loved one:

  • How does a person get coronavirus in a nursing home?
  • Did a senior care facility have a plan to protect its patients from coronavirus?
  • Who can be held responsible for my mother’s or father’s death after they contracted COVID-19?
  • Were nursing homes following the proper guidelines and protocols to help protect residents from coronavirus?

The Barnes Firm has a team of investigators who will stop at nothing to get answers to these questions. Our best coronavirus lawyers have decades of experience investigating the practices of nursing homes and senior care centers throughout the United States.

Step 3

The final step in the legal process is getting you and your family the compensation you deserve after losing a loved one due to nursing home negligence or neglect.

This step will look into all possible factors that can help maximize your family’s recovery, and hold senior care facilities accountable for their actions so that others do not have to suffer the same fate.

In many cases, this process can result in meaningful changes to nursing home policies or the laws the govern senior care centers.
