Has A Loved One Been Harmed In A Nursing Home?

Placing a loved one into a nursing home is one of the most difficult decisions a person has to make. You want them to be well cared for, so you research the options and choose a nursing home you believe you can trust. But, even the most discerning people can find themselves with suspicions that their senior loved ones are not receiving the quality of care they should.

There are many signs that can indicate that your senior loved one is being abused or neglected such as:

  • Bed sores (decubitus ulcers)
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Rashes
  • Bruising
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Reluctance to speak in front of staff

If you fear that your senior loved one is at risk, we can begin helping you create accountability for any harm he or she has suffered.

Holding Nursing Home Owners Accountable

Too often, the owners of nursing homes fail to take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of their patients. They may do this to save money or for some other reason. Possible failures to act that could lead to the abuse or neglect of seniors include:

  • Insufficient staffing — Not having enough staff, can leave violent/abusive staff with unsupervised access to patients.
  • Inadequate background checks — Failing to conduct sufficient background checks could lead to hiring people with violent backgrounds or other issues that may make them unsuitable to care for others.
  • Inappropriate procedures — There are many generally accepted standards of care for nursing home patients. Failure to conduct a proper risk assessment may leave a patient exposed to hazards such as falls or wandering away from the facility.
