Nursing Home Abuse

Placing your loved one in a nursing home is an act of trust. Unfortunately, sometimes this trust is violated. When long term care facilities begin prioritizing profits over people, the resulting cost cutting increases the risks of nursing home neglect, negligence, & elder abuse. Common indications of such mistreatment include:

  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Unexplained bruises or bone fractures
  • Unexplained death

If someone you love has been harmed in a nursing home, we want to help. Holding the nursing home responsible is one way of respecting the dignity of the victim and protecting other residents from the same neglect or abuse. Common concerns in elder abuse and neglect cases include:

  • Failure to attend a patient, leading to falls
  • Inadequate screening, training or supervision of staff members
  • Failure to formulate a care plan for the resident
  • Medication errors

Rigorous Trial Advocacy for Victims

Nursing home cases need a law firm that is sensitive to victims’ reluctance or inability to testify, understands the industry procedures and regulations, and is well-networked with medical professionals able to provide expert testimony. Don’t settle for someone who is not experienced in the handling of these very complex matters.
