Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys Helping Some of the Most Vulnerable Members of Society It is never easy to place a parent, spouse or other loved one in a nursing home facility. When you place a loved one in a nursing home, you are trusting the staff and administrators to provide the care you cannot provide. When this trust is broken, and your loved one suffers neglect or abuse, it is an outrage. Nursing home injuries can happen from any number of causes, including:
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Elopement or wandering
- Medication errors
- Misuse of physical or chemical restraints
- Burns caused by scalding hot water or other preventable circumstances
Inattentive or negligent staff members are the cause of nearly all of these problems. In too many instances, nursing home administrators are more concerned with their bottom line than with providing quality care. If your parent, spouse or a loved one has been harmed in a nursing home, it is critical to take action. A successful lawsuit can provide your loved one with deserved compensation. In addition, a successful lawsuit will send a message to these and other facilities that cut costs at the expense of the people they are supposed to serve.
