Nursing Home Abuse
When your loved one is placed in a nursing home, it is a challenging and emotional experience for everyone involved. When we place a loved one in a nursing home, we expect they will be treated well and provided proper care from the nursing home staff. However, it is becoming more common for nursing homes to fail to appropriately treat their patients. Many nursing homes are overcrowded and understaffed resulting in neglect, or their employees may simply be under-trained or even abuse their patients. When a person is neglected or abused by nursing home staff, loved ones may be subjected to the following:
- Bedsores & Open Wounds
- Malnutrition & Dehydration
- Errors in Medication
If you or your loved one suspect neglect or abuse from a nursing home, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact an experienced attorney in this area to ensure that your loved one is protected and that this neglect or abuse will not happen to anyone again at the respective nursing home. In order to prevail on a nursing home negligence case, you must prove that the nursing home breached the standard of care in treating their resident, and that the breach of the standard of care of the nursing home staff was the cause of the resident’s injury.
