Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse

We entrust the care of our loved ones to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. When nursing home staff and administration act in a negligent manner, that trust is betrayed.

Compassionate Support For Victims Of Nursing Home Abuse

If your family member is suffering due to nursing home neglect, we can help you pursue justice and compensation. Filing a claim against a nursing home can ensure that your loved one is protected and compensated for his or her suffering and that others are protected from these same harmful practices.

Nursing home neglect takes many forms. Many cases involve:

  • Bedsores (decubitus ulcers)
  • Restraint injuries
  • Fall-related injuries
  • Wandering off
  • Failure to monitor
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration

Additionally, elderly residents may suffer as a result of the willful abuse of staff members and fellow residents. Physical and sexual abuse can result from staff members not being properly supervised on shifts or faulty hiring practices by the nursing home administration. Also, if a resident is known to present a risk to fellow residents, the staff is responsible for keeping that person from harming others.
