When a person is receiving care in a hospital or emergency room, that person has the right to receive treatment that meets the standard of care. Unfortunately, EMTs, nurses, emergency room personnel and other medical professionals can make mistakes — due to lack of training, under-staffing or other reasons — that result in serious injuries to their patients.
Additionally, residents of nursing homes and elder care facilities in Louisiana deserve to receive proper treatment from staff members and administrators.
