Defining Negligent Placement

Negligent placement occurs when a residential treatment center fails to place their patients in a situation where they can feel safe and secure to recover. This can occur when:

  • A patient is incorrectly diagnosed and incorrectly placed in a facility.
  • A center does not correct any mistakes in placement.
  • A center continues to place a patient in an incorrect program.

Patients receiving treatment for illnesses or conditions they may not necessarily have can lead to potentially devastating consequences, including complications that may lead to further deterioration, serious injury, and even death.

Who is Liable?

The residential treatment center may be held liable for all instances of negligent placement in their facility, as they are responsible for the staffing of the center and the training of that staff. Improper training and hiring practices may lead to staff that does not properly care for the patients. Additionally, residential treatment centers may continue to incorrectly place patients so that they may collect more profits from them.
