Medical errors and negligence can occur at any medical facility, and any medical personnel can cause injury to you or a loved one. Similarly, negligent acts can cause severe injuries to patients in nursing homes. Under medical or long-term care, people are in a vulnerable state, and mistakes do happen. We trust our health and safety to the doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, pharmacists and other staff members caring for us in medical or nursing home facilities. However, when mistakes are made, negligence or carelessness is often the cause, and victims deserve injury compensation that will help them recover physically, emotionally and financially.
At Stumpf, Vickers & Sandy P.A., we provide compassionate and personalized service to victims of negligent medical and nursing home care in Delaware. Errors, misdiagnoses, neglect and improper care can lead to injuries that not only cause physical pain, but also impact victims emotionally and financially, and can even lead to wrongful death. Our Georgetown medical malpractice lawyer, Brian Dolan, is a partner at the firm who has focused exclusively on personal injury and medical malpractice cases in Delaware for more than 15 years. He understands that each case is unique, and injuries affect all of our clients differently.

Protecting Nursing Home Residents From Abuse
Nursing home negligence is just as serious as other forms of medical negligence and can cause devastating injuries to victims whether in a home or in an assisted living facility. The vulnerabilities of the elderly and disabled can expose them to a wide variety of injuries stemming from negligent or careless acts such as:
- Medication error
- Failure to monitor patients or poor supervision
- Lack of training for staff members
- Other medical malpractice concerns
Abuse or negligence in elderly care facilities can go unnoticed. If you suspect or notice signs of negligence or abuse such as malnutrition, pressure ulcers (known as bedsores), sudden depression or inability to focus, please contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
