Our firm is currently handling multiple cases regarding the tragic deaths of residents at Canterbury Rehabilitation and Healthcare as a result of Coronavirus or COVID-19. We are investigating to see whether certain guidelines were followed and institutional standards met at Canterbury in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Every nursing home including Canterbury has a duty to take certain measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect its vulnerable residents.
These measures include but are not limited to restricting all visitation except for essential personnel, canceling all group activities and communal dining, and implementing active screening of residents and healthcare personnel for symptoms of COVID-19.
If Canterbury failed to take appropriate steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it may be liable for any deaths related to the virus.
