Nursing home neglect attorney.

When you transition an elderly family member into a nursing home, you expect your loved one to be treated with dignity and respect and to receive appropriate care. Unfortunately, abuse and neglect can take place in nursing home facilities. I have years of experience fighting for the rights of nursing home abuse and neglect victims.

Understanding nursing home abuse and neglect.

There are many state and federal laws in place designed to protect the well-being and rights of nursing home residents. We carefully review every chart to see if these statutes and regulations have been violated. Nursing home abuse and neglect can take on many forms and is devastating for victims and families.

Common injuries due to nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Bedsores and ulcers
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Weight gain and loss
  • Fractures
  • Bruising
  • Severe infections
  • Medication errors

You can help protect your loved ones by keeping an eye on their physical appearance and emotional demeanor. While some injuries and changes naturally occur in aging individuals, you should watch for patterns and signs of neglect or abuse.

Common signs that a resident is enduring neglect or abuse include:

  • Unexplained personality changes
  • Personal hygiene issues
  • Wandering and elopement
  • Medication changes
  • Mood swings
  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Unexplained bruising, fractures or sores
  • Improperly maintained or unkept equipment

Abuse and neglect can be emotional, physical or financial. If you believe a loved is a victim of improper treatment, you can take action by contacting a personal injury lawyer.
