Elder Abuse – Nursing Home Neglect

image

We depend on nursing homes and residential care facilities to provide a safe and caring environment for our loved ones.  Unfortunately, more and more we are encountering glossy brochures but empty and failed promises. With our loved ones in such very vulnerable positions,  caregivers and other professionals can cause an older person very great harm due to neglect, spite and ignorance.

With a third of the nursing homes in the United States cited for abuse violations in the last two years, there can be no more important area of law.

Signs and Red Flags of Elder Abuse

  • Bed Sores
  • Bruises or any other sign of physical injury
  • Impatience, Arrogance or Disrespect by ANY caregiver or staff
  • Lack of Cleanliness (unpleasant odors such as urine or feces)
  • Isolation
  • Falls
  • Frequent urinary tract infections (UTI’s)
  • Short staffing of personnel
  • Your instinct that “something just isn’t right”
