If you have a loved one who is currently in a nursing home or residential care facility, we know that professional care and treatment is your top concern. Unfortunately, we live in a world where the elderly are not always treated in a respectful or professional manner. That’s why we are passionate about making sure that your nursing home negligence case is heard and that your loved one receives justice.
Nursing home neglect can happen in a number of ways. Abuse may include physical mistreatment, financial manipulation, sexual abuse, abandonment, neglect or deprivation. In fact, any action that results in physical harm, or mental or emotional pain and suffering can be a sign of elder abuse or nursing home negligence.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home or residential treatment facility and you suspect that he or she has been mistreated or abused, give us a call to discuss your case today. Often, these problems are a result of nursing home under-staffing or improper management. Nurses or other care professionals may not be appropriately trained or prepared to work with the elderly, or the facility may lack proper care-giving procedures and protocol.
Some of the common signs of elder abuse include:
- Conflicts with nurse, management or other care giver
- Changes in financial status
- Behavioral changes, including social withdrawal
- Lack of hygiene or basic care
- Unexplained bruises, scratches or other injuries
