Seeking justice for those harmed by nursing home neglect, abuse

There is no doubt about just how difficult it can be for family members to arrive at the decision to have their elderly loved one placed in a nursing home.

The difficulty of this decision likely stems from the realization on the part of family members that they simply can't provide the level of care their elderly loved one needs for this next chapter of their life no matter how hard they try.

It goes without saying then that despite their good intentions and their efforts to find the best possible facility, it's not without some trepidation -- and even guilt -- that family members leave their elderly loved one with nursing home staff.

The unfortunate reality, however, is that the trust placed in the nursing home staff by family members to provide the best possible care may someday be replaced by feelings of anger and betrayal if evidence of nursing home neglect or abuse is uncovered.

In general, this unacceptable behavior can encompass just some of the following:

  • Falls resulting from inadequate supervision and/or unsafe facilities
  • Malnutrition, dehydration and bedsores attributable to a lack of care
  • Abusive conduct that affects a resident physically, emotionally or even financially
  • Infections caused by the failure to take the necessary measures or implement the proper protocol.

It's important for families in these extremely unfortunate situations to understand that they do have rights and they do have options. Specifically, a highly skilled and dedicated attorney can examine the unique circumstances of their case and work to hold all parties who played a role in the loss of their elderly loved one or their serious personal injuries accountable in a court of law.
