Nursing Home Abuse

Caring for our elderly is a growing industry. We as a society and as family members expect the doctors, nurses and other medical staff members to treat our loved ones with respect, kindness and proper care to insure that their stay is comfortable and results in optimal improvement in the health residents. Unfortunately, too often this is not the case.

The elderly are often victims of abuse such as:

  • Avoidable and/or Untreated Bedsores
  • Inadequate and/or Improper Medical Care
  • Malnutrition and/or Dehydration

Preventable accidents such as:

  • Injuries Due to the Failure to Restrain a Disorientated
  • Patient; Bruises; and/or Broken Bones

Medical errors such as:

  • Dispensing the Wrong Medicine and/or the Wrong Dose
  • Failure to Diagnose and/or Treat Pneumonia and/or Other
    Illnesses Commonly Seen in Elderly Patients
  • Poor Hygiene
  • Unnecessary Pain and/or Failure to Manage Pain Appropriately

Your parents, grandparents and other loved ones deserve the highest quality of care. If you observe or suspect that any of the above forms of abuse are occurring, please call my office to arrange for a free consultation. After a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding your claim, including discussions with appropriate experts, we will evaluate available legal remedies.
