Patient Supervision Mismanagement & Errors

Care homes have a duty to supervise and monitor elderly patients and other residents under their care, in order to meet the needs of the patient and help aid a patient’s recovery, rest and recuperation. Supervision can be especially important in the case of a resident recovering from surgery and where mobility and assistance is specifically vital. Mismanagement in this area can result in discomfort, injury and exacerbation of a medical condition.
