Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

nursing home abuse lawyer

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

There are numerous nursing homes throughout the greater Manhattan area. When placing an ailing loved one within the confounds of these convalescent centers, you trust that they will have a safe environment to call home. You hope that they will get the care and attention that you would give if you were able to care for their condition. Many times, nursing home abuse becomes a subject of concern. These homes are often overcrowded, and they cannot keep good help. Your loved one may suffer due to a lack of staff and incompetent workforce.

Identifying the Signs of Nursing Home Neglect

One of the first ways to tell if your loved one is not being treated properly is by their physical appearance. Are they being bathed? Have their diapers been changed? Do they look and smell clean? These are all things that you should observe each time you visit. Is their room unkempt, and have the sheets been laundered? Make mental notes of anything you notice that is not correct. Infraction of this nature falls under the neglect category, but it is not abuse.

When Abuse Is An Issue

Some workers don’t take the proper precautions with the elderly. Some even treat them mean or disrespectful because they don’t feel they can retaliate. It is sad when a worker feels that a person deserves less than superior care, just because they have a medical condition and are older. Yet, it happens every day all across Manhattan. When visiting your loved one, make sure you look for sores on the body. Bed sores commonly form on a person who is unable to get out of bed. Still, the nursing facility has an obligation to turn the patient and address any sores immediately. Sometimes, bed sores are just unavoidable. As long as they are being up front and trying to resolve the issue, it is not abuse.

Other unexplainable marks are a bit more concerning. Are there large bruises that could have occurred from a slip and fall condition? Bruises are also something that is common with the elderly. They may appear at the site where blood is drawn, or they can come about from various diseases. However, if you notice new and frequent bruising patterns, it can point to something else. Elderly patients can fall due to a poor equilibrium. Consequently, they can be mistreated and that can result in bruising too. It’s up to you to question the nursing home regarding any bodily marks that are unexplainable.

Observe Loved One’s Behaviors

It can be especially difficult when a loved one has lost the ability to speak. They may not be able to tell you what is wrong. You can find out a lot by their body language. Do they become unsettled when certain workers are around? When you ask them general questions, do they have a concerned look on their face? If they can speak, encourage them to be honest about what is going on. They may not want to talk for fear of the abuse worsening for tattling. Realistically, the elderly become quite childlike toward the later years. It may be hard for them to tell you what is truly going on. In most cases, you must play the detective.

When To Get Legal Help

If you have witnessed issues that you feel are grounds for a nursing home suit, you must document anything you see. Take as many pictures as possible, which will help to help solidify your case. Start a journal and keep track of all the things that are not right. You will soon see how serious the case is based on your documentation. Armed with information, it’s time to take action. A legal team can help you file a suit in court and use the information you have as a basis. Additionally, a legal team may be privy to other cases regarding the same nursing home that can only strengthen your claims. If you have talked to the staff at the nursing home and your concerns are not being addressed, don’t take matters into your own hands; take them to court.
