Elder and Nursing Home Abuse
Neglect, abuse, or fraud that results in death, injury, or financial harm.
When a loved one is in a licensed nursing home or care facility, you presume they are well-cared for.
Abuse, neglect, unreported medical issues, financial abuse, and wrongful death devastate you and your loved one.
Yes, federal and state regulations are designed to protect the elderly, but violations involving their health and well-being occur too often.
Signs and Symptoms of Nursing Home Abuse include:
- Frequent Falls
- Pressure Sores
- Unexplained bruising or other injuries, such as broken bones
- Over medication
- The inability of the nursing home to sufficiently explain the patient’s injuries and condition
- Financial exploitation
- Medical negligence
- Wrongful death
