Complaining about negligent care or abuse received in a nursing home or similar establishment

If you have concerns about the standard of care being provided to a loved one by a specialist organisation such as a nursing home, we may be able to help.

If your relative has suffered injury whilst in a care facility, there may be grounds for a Nursing Home compensation claim to be made. Before considering a claim, however, you may simply wish to make a formal complaint.

We can also help claim back care home fees that may have been paid incorrectly, and we offer NHS complaints advice or can help you make medical negligence compensation claim if you or a loved one have suffered medical malpractice.

The national press reported in May 2008 that social services departments and other organisations were receiving up to 5000 complaints a month regarding care abuse or neglect. The figures were released by the Governments own watchdog called the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCC).

Councils claim to be receiving up to 60,000 calls a year from concerned relatives and friends. There are more than 14600 care homes in England alone which gives you some idea of the scale of the problem. There are thought to be almost 800,000 people receiving care on some level from nursing establishments across the country.

Steps you should take to make a complaint:

  1. Speak to a solicitor if you feel injury or harm has resulted from the negligent act or acts.
  2. Complain to your local Council social care service department.
  3. Complain to the commission for social care inspection.

If you think that you or your relative may have a case for claiming negligence against a Care Home – Contact us today for friendly, informal advice on your case. No obligation and No charge.

The law in brief – to make a claim:

  1. You must show the standard of care was unreasonable
  2. That injury or harm resulted from this
  3. A No win No fee claim may be possible
