What Should I Do if I Suspect Nursing Home Abuse?

Video Transcript

How many of you have suspected or actually believe that your loved one has been abused or neglected in a nursing home? Unfortunately, I feel that is true about many of you. Abuse and neglect, it usually results from nursing homes not having enough staff or nursing homes having staff that frequently change our nursing homes having staff that don’t communicate with each other. Your loved one needs time and attention in order to prevent falls or bedsores or wandering away from the nursing home or physical or sexual abuse or medication errors, nursing homes need trained staff, sufficient staff, and staff that is allowed to work with the appropriate resources to give your loved ones the care that they need. If you suspect something is going wrong, if you see that your loved one has an injury that you think may be due to abuse or neglect, if you think your loved one is hospitalized because the nursing home did not do its job, feel free to give us a call. Not every case is a case we can handle or is a right fit for our firm. But every call we receive, we take seriously. And if we can’t help you, we will find the help that you need. For decades, our firm has been working with people like you to get compensation for those of your loved ones who have been injured or worse, to advocate for nursing home residents and their families and get you the justice and and fair and reasonable compensation that you deserve for the harm that your family and your loved one has suffered. Also importantly, it’s you and us working together to righting the wrongs that will occur in nursing homes, to ensure that they have the appropriate staffing and resources, to give the care they advertise that they’re going to give. And it is you and us working together that will improve nursing home care in this country.
