Negligent Staffing Leads to Residential Treatment Center Abuse

Negligent staffing can cause several instances of abuse in residential treatment centers, including:

  • False imprisonment
  • Negligent placement
  • Neglect of patients’ wellbeing
  • Physical and emotional abuse of patients
  • Sexual assault, including rape

Patients in RTCs entrust the staff to be capable in their jobs, but unfortunately, that is often not the case. The result is a facility that seems more like a prison than a rehabilitation center, where abuse and neglect are common – and, in severe circumstances, wrongful death can result.

Who is Liable in a Negligent Staffing Case?

In instances of negligent staffing in a residential treatment center, many parties may share liability for any injuries incurred.

  • The staff may be held liable for any damages or injuries – especially if it was proven that the company exercised their due diligence in giving them all the tools and training necessary to excel.
  • The organization may be held liable for lack of proper training to their staff, or any other inadequacies at the RTC.

At RTC Lawyers, we thoroughly investigate every aspect of your abuse claim to determine precisely who is liable for your damages. We pursue every responsible party to not only ensure you receive your maximum possible compensation but to also hold all parties accountable for their careless actions.
