Nursing Home Abuse - Neglect

Nursing home abuse lawyers work with nursing home residents and their families. Nursing home residents depend on the nursing home staff to assist with their daily needs, as well as treat them for physical or medical conditions. Because residents are so vulnerable, abuse can take many forms. Staff can give residents too many drugs or the wrong ones, deprive them of heat or food, or simply pay insufficient attention to their needs. Nursing home abuse lawyers recognize when a resident has been mistreated, even if the resident isn't aware or able to communicate it. Nursing home abuse lawyers know which social service agencies to contact to report abuse, and can have a court-appointed guardian make decisions in the resident's best interests. If a nursing home resident's condition causes you concern, nursing home abuse lawyers can advise you on how to proceed.
