Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing homes, home health care providers, assisted living environments and other elder care facilities are legally required to provide a certain level of care and protection for residents. However, most of these facilities bring in as many residents as possible in an effort to increase their profit margins, but they lack the staff and other resources to adequately care for their residents. The risk of inadequate care only increases for residents with Alzheimer's or other conditions that require highly specialized care.
There are many examples of nursing home neglect, including:
- Lack of proper hygiene
Nursing Home Abuse
Although it is much less common, residents of elder care facilities are sometimes victims of abuse. Physical, sexual and emotional abuse and even financial exploitation can leave victims hurt, embarrassed, depressed and confused. We can represent you in an assault claim or related claim to make sure you receive full and fair compensation for the injuries and losses you have suffered.
