Experienced Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
Nursing homes care for the most vulnerable elderly members of our society, and families trust them to provide the necessary care and medical attention. Unfortunately, some residents of nursing homes or assisted living centers become victims of abuse, neglect or staff errors.
Individuals or families of individuals who’ve suffered abuse or neglect at a nursing home should consult a nursing home neglect lawyer to review their case and offer advice on the best course of action.
Causes of Injuries
Nursing home injuries or death may occur for many reasons:
- Poorly trained staff
- Inappropriate staffing levels
- Medication errors
- Slips, trips and falls
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Bed sores or pressure sores
- Transportation injuries
- Wandering off due to improper safety procedures
- Physical, emotional or sexual abuse
What to do After an Injury
Nursing home administrators might try to cut corners by reducing staffing, not providing adequate nutrition or hiring under-qualified staff. While those decisions might save money in their budget, they can also put residents at risk. If you’re concerned that a loved one’s injury or death in a nursing home was due to neglect or failure to follow safety regulations, contact our experienced team of nursing home neglect lawyers today to discuss your case.
