One of the worst things about nursing home neglect is the abuse of trust that the families feel. They trust that the nursing home would provide better care than they could at home. Instead they find that their loved ones have been hurt and in some cases, severely injured.
For our clients and the families of the elderly or people with physical and developmental disabilities and false promises are simply not acceptable. If a nursing home has broken your trust and injured someone you care about, take action. Talk to a lawyer who will fight for you.
Many different types of nursing home neglect and abuse:
- Bed sores (also called pressure sores and decubitus ulcers)
- Untreated infections
- Medication errors
- Lack of supervision/wandering off/elopement
- Broken bones from falls or abuse
- Physical or mental abuse
