Help Put An End To Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
Abuse and neglect in nursing homes is unconscionable. Unfortunately, it happens more often than you might think. Our elders are vulnerable and easily intimidated in nursing homes, but injuries often occur because of pure negligence, as opposed to wrongful acts.
Common causes of injuries and wrongful deaths in nursing homes include:
- Bedsores/pressure ulcers
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Resident abuse
- Staff abuse
- Medication errors
Many medical negligence claims stem from inadequate hiring, training and supervision of nursing home staff. Abuse can be physical, emotional, sexual and financial. If you suspect abusive actions or believe that injuries to your loved one may have been caused by negligence at the nursing home, please do not hesitate to contact us for a free case evaluation.
