Nursing homes were designed so that individuals with health problems that were too much for home care but not enough for hospitalization could get the care they need in a comfortable, semi-home environment. When these individuals are not properly taken care of, it may be considered negligence on the part of the nursing home staff. Unfortunately, nursing home negligence can cause many emotional and physical problems, including death.
Many nursing homes are staffed with overworked, untrained people who can abuse or neglect your loved one. Since nursing home abuse and neglect has risen, a bill of rights has now been established to protect the rights of nursing home residents and to ensure nursing home regulations are maintained correctly.
Nursing home abuse is a serious problem that can lead to death in the most serious of cases. If you believe you or a loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or nursing home neglect, contact an experienced nursing home negligence lawyer. Your nursing home negligence lawyer will help determine if you or your loved one has suffered from the neglect and mistreatment by nursing home staff. They will make sure that you or your loved one receive the compensation to which you are entitled.
