Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

There is an alarming increase of nursing home abuse in this nation, and a qualified personal injury attorney may be the only individual willing to stand up and protect the elderly.

You need an experienced team of personal attorney lawyers at your side.

Types of Abuse

When we think of abuse, we may only be thinking of physical attacks or assault; however, abuse covers a wide variety of negative treatment. The following are the types of abuse that may occur at a nursing home:

  • Physical Abuse - Obviously this is the most obvious form of abuse, however some nursing home abuse is done in a way that isn't visible. Striking certain areas of the body, or hiding bruises may occur so that even visiting family members may not know if physical abuse was done.

  • Neglect - This is a much more difficult form of abuse to detect, because it is subtle Neglect may include:

  • Physical neglect: disregard for the necessities of daily living

  • Medical neglect: lack of care for existing medical problems

  • Failure to prevent dehydration, malnutrition, and bed sores

  • Failure to assist in personal hygiene, or in the provision of food, clothing, or shelter

  • Unsanitary and unclean conditions

  • Infections

  • Failure to protect from health and safety hazards

  • Poor access to medical services

  • Verbal/Emotional Abuse - If an elderly person is in a nursing home, they may be harshly treated verbally, called names, taken advantage of, etc. Our personal injury attorneys rigorously defense those who have suffered verbal abuse or emotional abuse at a nursing home.
