Nursing Home Elder Abuse
Our nursing home abuse attorneys are committed to protecting the rights of elderly and disabled residents of nursing homes. We have in-house nurses and full time private investigators that assist us in preparing and prosecuting cases against nursing homes.
We have made this commitment and we are focusing a substantial part of our practice on nursing home matters because we have seen the abuse,neglect and indignities suffered by nursing home residents.
We believe that nursing homes that provide inadequate care should be held accountable.
If you are concerned that your loved one might be the victim of nursing home abuse, consider these potential signs of nursing home abuse.
Underlying causes of nursing home abuse and neglect
The majority of nursing home abuse and neglect cases can be attributed to insufficient staffing and inadequate training. In an effort to cut costs and make more money, nursing homes may hire marginal, insufficient numbers of staff that are physically incapable of providing sufficient care and supervision for residents.
In its quest to maximize profits a nursing home may also opt to spend little or no money for training, resulting in unqualified employees. With an inadequate work force, serious nursing home accidents and nursing home deaths may occur that could otherwise be prevented.
