We place our elderly loved one into nursing homes with the expectation that they will remain safe and cared for in a nursing home facility.

Although some nursing home care injuries do arise from innocent accidents, in many cases injuries are a clear sign that a nursing home patient has been the victim of abuse or neglect. Nursing home care injuries can be caused by various kinds of abuse or neglect, including:
- Physical abuse, which can include punching, slapping, kicking, pushing, choking, restraining, or overmedicating nursing home patients
- Mental or emotional abuse, which can include yelling or cursing at patients, belittling patients or treating them like children, or threatening patients with physical harm or neglect
- Sexual abuse, involving any unwanted or non-consensual sexual touching between a patient and a staff member or other sexual exploitation of a nursing home patient
- Neglect, including the failure to provide necessary medical and personal care to a patient
- Self-neglect, which can involve staff members failing to intervene when a patient fails to undertake personal care (such as bathing or feeding) that the patient is capable of doing on his or her own
If you have a loved one who has suffered injuries while in the care of a nursing home, we may be able to help you and your family recover compensation and justice for your loved one.

About North Wales, PA
The borough of North Wales is a suburb of Philadelphia located in Montgomery County, PA. A historic community comprising one of the three population centers forming the North Penn Valley region, North Wales has since grown past its official boundaries to presently include many areas in outlying townships and unincorporated communities that were never annexed to North Wales. North Wales grew from a rural community into its suburban character beginning in the mid-1800s with the introduction of railroad lines, later trolley lines, into Philadelphia.
Frequently Asked Questions about Nursing Home Care Injury in North Wales, PA
If you believe that your loved one is in immediate danger of injury or death in a nursing home, you should immediately call 911 to let law enforcement handle the situation and make sure your loved one is safe. However, when nursing home care injuries arise from more subtle, ongoing abuse or neglect, you can also report your suspicions to the nursing home administrators (as the abuse or neglect may be committed by only one or a few employees), as well as to the ombudsman’s office or the Pennsylvania Department of Health (they may initiate an official investigation). You should also speak to a nursing home care injury lawyer about your loved one’s legal rights and options; an attorney can also help you move your loved one out of a dangerous facility, if necessary.
If your loved one has suffered injuries under nursing home care, he or she may be entitled to compensation for the medical care necessary to treat his or her injuries. He or she may also be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering endured as a result of the injuries and/or the medical care required to treat those injuries, along with the loss of enjoyment of life due to disabilities or disfigurements brought about by injuries or lost quality years of life.
