Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
AREAS OF SPECIALTY
NURSING HOME ABUSE AND NEGLECT
As our population ages, more and more seniors are unable to care for themselves. Because friends and family are not always able to care for the needs of seniors, for-profit nursing homes and assisted living centers have experienced a major surge in their number and in the number of seniors they care for.
Unfortunately, in some such facilities, elders are being abused, both physically and financially.
Nursing home neglect can manifest itself in many different conditions and it can result in a variety of injuries, including:
- Bed Sores
- Financial Abuse
- Failure to Medicate & Monitor
The national statistics on nursing home and elder abuse are grim. Conservative estimates indicate that one of three homes in America will be affected in some way by abuse of an elder in a nursing home or assisted living facility. With the senior citizen population growing at a rapid pace, nursing homes and senior assisted care facilities nationwide now exceed 1.5 million. This number is expected to triple in the next three years. Oftentimes, nursing homes attempt to save money and maximize profit by using inadequately trained or unqualified help. This puts your loved one at risk.
Working with experienced nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers is critical in order to obtain proper compensation for your elderly relative and insure that your loved one will be treated with the proper dignity and respect. Forcing nursing homes to meet their responsibilities to their residents is achieved by holding them financially accountable.
