Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence Attorneys
Nursing Home Abuse and Injuries
Older folks are easier to target as abuse victims when they are too old to defend themselves, or too disabled to provide their own care. One of the most common places for this type of abuse is in the nursing homes entrusted with the safety and care of our parents and grandparents. Often underfunded and containing too few and/or poorly trained employees, many nursing homes can endanger the lives of their patients both physically and emotionally.
What Is Considered Nursing Home Abuse?
Elder mistreatment in the form of abuse and neglect is defined as negligent actions that cause harm or create a serious risk of harm (even when the harm is not intended) to a vulnerable elder by a caregiver. This includes the failure by a caregiver to meet the elder’s basic needs or to protect the elder from harm. Many cases involve bedsores, dropped patients, falls, malnutrition, infections, and medication errors.
