St. Louis COVID-19 Nursing Home Wrongful Death Claims
COVID-19 has spread throughout the nation and has rapidly impacted nursing home facilities. As of May 1st, 2020, 16,000 nursing home residents have been killed as a result of the virus. Research has shown that coronavirus spreads quickest through touch and close contact with coronavirus carriers. The CDC has reccommended that all citizens wear masks and gloves, wash their hands frequently, and social distance. However, prevention measures need to be more strict for nursing homes and long-term care facilities.
Residents and staff showing symptoms of the virus, such as coughing, running a fever, muscle pain, and respiratory issues, should be isolated. Common surfaces in facilities should be disinfected frequently, and all outside visitors (hospice, specialists, and other guests) should be restricted. If a nursing home fails to take these necessary prevention measures, and a resident or employee dies from the virus, the facility can be held liable, and a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed.
St. Louis, MO, Coronavirus Workers Compensation Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Many people have chosen to self-quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic, and some businesses have offered employees the option to work remotely. However, there are thousands of "essential employees" still working in their place of employment. Some essential employees during the COVID-19 pandemic include grocery store workers, public transportation employees, bank staff, and public service employees.
Similar to the prevention measures for the seasonal flu and other illnesses, workers must wash their hands often. But, unlike cold and flus, to prevent COVID-19 spread, workers should wear gloves and masks, shared surfaces need to be disinfected often, and staff and residents should implement social distancing. If employers aren't providing employees with adequate coronavirus prevention equipment, and a staff member is killed after catching the virus on the job, a wrongful death lawsuit can be brought against the careless employer.>
