COVID-19 Nursing Home Neglect – Frequently Asked Questions
If you or a loved one contracted COVID-19 while living in a nursing home, caretakers may have neglected their duties to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. The best way to know if you have a valid case or not is to consult with an experienced nursing home neglect attorney. Your lawyer can help to collect the necessary evidence that proves the nursing home operators did not take reasonable steps to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Yes. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued official COVID-19 (Coronavirus) guidelines for all healthcare providers in an effort to control the transmission of the virus. Within those guidelines, there are measures specific to nursing facilities and COVID-19. There are additional recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help nursing homes and other senior care facilities prevent the spread of COVID-19. If nursing homes failed to comply with these measures, they could have contributed to the spread of COVID-19 at the facility and you may deserve compensation.
According to the guidelines set forth by CMS and CDC, nursing homes must restrict all visitors, volunteers and other non-essential personnel from the facility. They must also cancel all group activities and communal dining involving residents. In addition, a process of actively screening all residents and staff for fever and respiratory symptoms must be in place. If these measures were not strictly implemented and you or your loved one contracted COVID-19, call our nursing home neglect attorneys today. We will fight for your rights and make sure those people are held accountable for their actions.
All nursing homes and assisted living facilities have strict guidelines to prevent the spread of infections, viruses and contagious diseases. Some of the CDC guidelines include immediately isolating the resident from others to prevent exposure. Staff members must wear personal protective equipment (PPE) when coming in contact with the resident. The resident’s physician must be contacted, in addition to the health department, for further guidance and testing. The nursing home should have prepared the facility to safely triage and manage patients with any respiratory illness, including COVID-19. Your nursing home neglect lawyer can help you gather evidence that shows the nursing home did not comply with these or other necessary procedures.
Your first step is to work with an experienced team of legal experts who will hold those responsible for the neglect accountable for their actions. Contact the attorneys at Adam S. Kutner, Injury Attorneys for a free and confidential consultation. We’ll evaluate your case and take the next steps on your behalf to protect you and your loved ones. You are not alone.

Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials
“I was in an accident four days after I got my new car and my mother recommended that I go to Adam Kutner because we have been with Adam Kutner actually since I was in my first accident, when I was eight. I was really happy to see how quickly everything was moving. I was expecting maybe a couple – well I have heard that people had taken a couple years to get a settlement from whatever accident, but I actually got mine within a few months, so it was really nice and really quick. After my meeting with Adam Kutners office they sent me to the doctor to get my back x-rayed and neck x-rayed because they knew – they noticed I was holding my neck in pain actually and, so they wanted to hurry up with the meeting which was really kind and they got me straight to the doctor and they got me the number and location for a chiropractor also which I was treated at for two months, I think. Overall, I would say it was really nice and quick because this was the first accident that I have ever been in on my own that I had to handle on my own, so it was really nice that the attorneys at Adam Kutners office were helpful and really patient with helping me understand what was going to happen and how they were going to help me. I would definitely recommend Adam Kutner to friends and family because you know they are really patient people, they are really friendly and helpful. I just feel like they get stuff done.”
