Nursing Home Abuse

When you place a loved one into the care of a nursing home facility, you expect that their needs will be met and that they will be cared for. Unfortunately, negligence, neglect and elder abuse are all too common in nursing homes.

Although there are numerous federal and state regulations in place to protect the elderly, unfortunately, in some of these settings, elder abuse happens all too often. Tragically, this can compromise the dignity and sometimes the life of those we want so badly to be well cared for.

We Rely Upon Nursing Homes To Care For Our Elderly And Disabled Adults

Many elderly and disabled adults rely upon nursing homes for their daily care. This includes meals, medication, bathing and maintaining general hygiene and cleanliness. Many nursing homes fail to live up to basic minimum standards of care for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to:

  • Failure to adequately staff the nursing home
  • Failure to adequately train the nursing home staff
  • Failure to prevent the abuse of patients by staff
  • Failure to monitor patients properly
  • Failure to provide a clean environment for patients
  • Failure to bathe and dress patients
  • Failure to provide adequate meals for patients
  • Failure to provide prescribed medications to patients

Whether the nursing home negligence or neglect was a single incident or a recurrent event that caused you or your loved one emotional or physical injuries, you have the right to seek full and fair financial compensation for the suffering.
