Holding Rehab Centers Accountable For Negligence
Drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities, their staff members and the health care professionals employed in these facilities are responsible for maintaining safe conditions for their patients. In addition, they are responsible for ensuring each patient receives the care and attention they need. When patients are not provided with adequate safety conditions or are abused by staff members, they can suffer fatal harm.
Below is a list of common causes of death in rehabilitation centers:
- Physical harm such as beatings
- Neglect which leads to malnourishment
- Neglect which leads to untreated illnesses
- Medication errors
- Poor treatment by staff members and medical professionals
- Unwillingness to contact medical support outside of facility when necessary
