The Law Offices of Kenneth Hiller is deeply committed to advocating for the rights of those affected by nursing home abuse and neglect. A critical aspect of these legal battles is comprehensive documentation, which provides the evidence needed to pursue justice effectively.
Minimum Data Sets (MDS) and Care Plans: A Legal Perspective
Minimum Data Sets (MDS) and the resulting care plans are fundamental in nursing home operations. They are detailed assessments that provide a snapshot of a resident’s health status and outline the care they require. These documents are pivotal in abuse and neglect cases, as they establish the standard of care that the nursing home is obligated to provide.
Why Proper Documentation Is Crucial
When MDS assessments and care plans are not followed, or if discrepancies arise, this can be indicative of negligence. Documenting instances of abuse, photographs of injuries, or changes in the resident’s well-being helps to build a strong case. Witness statements and logs of any incidents or concerns also play a significant role.
