Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

When the elderly and disabled come to a point in their lives when caring for their own wellbeing is too much, many look to family for help. If family is unable to provide their elderly loved ones with the support and assistance they need in their day-to-day lives, many look for a nursing home or assisted living facility. It’s here in which registered nurses and caregivers work tirelessly around the clock to care for those who cannot care for themselves at all or as much as they once did. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes and assisted living facilities are as safe as they appear. While many are wonderful places for your loved ones to call home, there are many nursing home residents living with daily abuse from the staff at nursing homes.

Nursing home abuse is a real problem across the country, and it must be stopped. When a nursing home or assisted living facility cares more about the bottom line than the wellbeing of its patients, there’s a higher chance of inept staff, nurses with improper certifications and education, and the chance of nursing home abuse increases substantially. The decision to send a loved one to a nursing home is difficult enough on families, and worrying about nursing home abuse shouldn’t add to the worry.

What is Nursing Home Abuse?

The term abuse brings to mind imagines of bruises, beatings, molestation, and other horrible images. While these are all forms of abuse, there are many other forms of nursing home abuse many are unaware exist.

– Unqualified staff
– Poor maintenance
– Improper standards of care
– Improper cleanliness
– Understaffed facilities
– No employee background checks
– Mistreatment and abuse of patients

When a facility is understaffed or staffed with employees who aren’t trained or taught properly how to care for elderly patients, abuse or neglect is often a side effect. Finding the right nursing home is a difficult task, and the knowledge that many facilities work without the proper equipment and staff makes it even more so.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

One of the most telltale signs of issues within a nursing home are those that don’t allow the families and visitors of their patients and/or residents to come for a visit unannounced. If you encounter a facility like this, run the opposite direction. Other indicators and warning signs include, but are not limited to, the following:

– Paleness
– Bugs in rooms
– Poor personal hygiene
– Overwhelming odor
– Untreated health issues
– Torn clothing
– Missing or broken personal items
– Untreated injuries and sores
– Bruises that appear in locations where restraints are commonly placed
– Weight loss that’s sudden or overwhelming
– Improper issuance of medications

Nursing home abuse is very real, and it happens more than you imagine. If you suspect a loved one is being abused in his or her nursing home or assisted living facility, contact an attorney today. An attorney who specializes in cases of nursing home abuse can launch an investigation into the practices at a specific facility and help you find compensation for the damages caused by this facility.

Compensation for nursing home abuse can encompass a myriad of issues.

– Pain and suffering
– Medical bills
– Repayment of fees paid to a facility
– Future medical care for the elderly resident or patient
– Funeral expenses if a patient dies in a nursing home
– Emotional care

If someone you love is abused at the hands of their assisted living facility, the results can be devastating. Not only can patients suffer medical conditions as a result of being given improper doses of medication, the wrong medication, or even having their medication withheld. Many patients don’t live through their neglect, and your family shouldn’t have to worry about the ramifications of a negligent facility when it comes to caring for your loved ones.
