Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing Home Negligence may take many forms. In Florida, nursing homes are regulated by The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration and federally by The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The regulations set out by these agencies provide a standard of care to which nursing home facilities and its agents must adhere to.
Some common examples of Nursing Home Negligence are:
A. Nursing Home Falls
C. Bed Sores.
Under Florida law, ordinary negligence causes of action are subject to a two-year statute of limitations (Time limit to bring a claim). The only exception to this is when the claimant is a minor age eight or younger, in which case the seven-year period does not bar an action brought on behalf of a minor on or before the child’s eighth birthday
