Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Unfortunately, our elderly and the disabled are sometimes subjected to nursing home abuse and neglect. Many facilities are cutting back on trained physicians, nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals, leaving too few or inadequately trained people to properly care for residents. Nusing home residents and their families often feel helpless at the hands of abusive or neglectful staff since they feel they have no alternatives. Residents are sometimes unwilling or unable to tell their relatives and loved ones about the abuse that is occurring.
We can be of assistance to you in taking any necessary legal action against a nursing home if your loved one has not received appropriate care. We address nursing home neglect and abuse cases involving:
- Failure to implement fall instructions
- Bedsores and infections
- General neglect
- Injuries from improper management of dementia
- Injuries and even death resulting from patients allowed to wander unsupervised
