Nursing Home Abuse — Common Injuries From Abuse And Neglect
We entrust the care of our elders to nursing home staff and medical professionals. However, cost-reduction and understaffing is prevalent throughout nursing homes. This results in your loved ones receiving often inadequate, negligent care that can result in devastating injuries caused by or including:
- Emotional withdrawal/desire for isolation
- Broken bones and hip fractures
- Back and neck injuries
- Bedsores (pressure ulcers)
- Complications from medication errors
- Wrongful death
Intentional abuse is also a serious issue in nursing homes. Staff members can become frustrated and take out aggression on residents who are unable to prevent the attacks. We firmly believe that physical and emotional attacks such as assault, battery, unreasonable restraint and sexual assault are unacceptable. When you retain our firm, we will work quickly to hold those responsible accountable for their actions, as well as fight to obtain compensation for an elder’s pain and suffering.
