The Injustice of Nursing Home Neglect

In your loved one’s most vulnerable time in their life, they deserve to be treated with dignity, care, and respect. Unfortunately, some nursing homes capitalize off of their vulnerability and choose to neglect the care of some elderly patients out of convenience. This is a clear violation of their duty as caretakers, and it must be addressed.

Neglect Cases We Cover

We understand that each case of nursing home neglect is unique. That’s why we cover a wide variety of nursing home neglect cases. Our attorneys can help with cases related to but not limited to the following:

Bed Sores

Bed sores are a painful ordeal that elderly patients can experience due to prolonged inactivity in bed or chair. With proper care and attention, they’re preventable. If your loved one has developed bed sores due to inadequate care, our nursing home neglect lawyers can help you seek justice.

Failure to Give Medications

When you entrust a nursing home with the care of your loved one, you expect them to administer medications as prescribed. Failure to do so can have serious implications on the health of elderly patients, and our attorneys are prepared to fight for their rights in this situation.

Failure to Monitor

As nursing home patients are vulnerable by nature, they must receive adequate monitoring and supervision from the staff. If your loved one has experienced any sort of injury due to inadequate monitoring and neglect, our attorneys can help you seek compensation for this injustice.

Failure to Inform Doctor of Health Emergencies

It’s essential that nursing home staff properly inform doctors of any health emergencies that arise with elderly patients, as this is crucial to their health and well-being. Our attorneys can help hold nursing homes accountable for any negligent behavior in this regard.
