Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence
How should a nursing home treat our loved ones? Just ask. When they are trying to convince you to choose their facility, you will hear exactly what should be done to keep a patient safe, happy, and content. We expect nursing homes to respect the elderly individuals entrusted in their care. Unfortunately, many nursing homes have lax safety and low standards of care. Elderly individuals can suffer from:
- Neglect: dehydration, malnutrition, unsanitary conditions
- Negligence: falls, medication errors
- Abuse: physical abuse, emotional abuse, theft
While nursing homes usually do a good job of caring for their patients, these incidents of abuse and unnecessary injury are too common. A lawyer can help you hold the nursing home accountable for its actions.
