Nursing home abuse is one of the most distressing of indignities targeting our older, vulnerable loved ones. While news of such abuse routinely makes the news, the deplorable practice continues.
This is significant given that our senior population is expanding and living longer, which leads to more and more family caretakers finding themselves in the challenging position of placing older relatives and loved ones in the care of nursing home facilities. Sadly, those family and loved ones who seek ethical, appropriate care for their senior relatives are often left with very limited options; their loved ones often suffer devastating indignities that include a broad array of abuse and neglect. Sadly, patients often suffer, not just physical pain, but humiliation, and in some cases death over inadequate care and abuse.
Nursing home facilities are meant to provide safe, compassionate, ethical, clean, and healthy treatment and living spaces for the elderly; however, abuse does happen and, when our elder loved ones are injured in any way, those responsible must be held responsible for their actions.
Our firm believes that everyone should be treated with dignity, especially those under our care who are unable to protect themselves. Our firm has long been committed to ensuring appropriate, compassionate care for our clients and our clients’ loved ones who are nursing home facility residents and we are committed to fighting for justice and financial compensation, when proper care has not been given.
Should you be concerned that a loved one has been, or is being victimized, at a nursing home facility, you may have valuable legal rights that will enable you to receive justice for your loved one and hold the nursing home and its staff accountable. Our lawyers have long fought against negligent and abusive nursing home staff and facilities.
