Nursing Home Abuse

We entrust our loved ones into the care of for-profit nursing homes and assisted-care facilities which promise to provide conscientious professional care. Unfortunately the reality is often very different. In an effort to protect their profits staff pay can be low, which can result in staff shortages and attract mainly unskilled applicants. Where personnel screening procedures are inadequate undesirable individuals can be hired. The results are mistakes, poor hygiene and in some cases deliberate abuse. If you suspect your loved one is the victim of abusive treatment consult an attorney about the situation.

Have you or a loved one been a victim of abuse?

Residents of these facilities may be victims of financial abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse and medical malpractice. Symptoms include poor grooming, unexplained falls and broken bones, rapid weight loss, bruises and wounds, restraint injuries, soiled bed linens or clothing, bed sores, medical emergencies due to medication errors, reluctance to communicate or obvious fearfulness and unexpected death. Other signs to be alert to are disappearance of personal possessions or cash and unexplained expenditures from bank accounts. Elders become more fragile as they age and more easily victimized by people they depend upon for their daily care. A nursing home abuse lawyer at our firm is committed to protecting the rights of the elderly to be treated with respect and is prepared to take action on behalf of anyone who is being victimized.

Both federal and state laws protect residents of nursing homes from abuse. If you have complained to the nursing staff or supervisor and the quality of care has not improved, seek legal assistance. Under California law a victim of abuse has only two years to file a claim for damages. If you are looking for a personal injury lawyer with a track record of results call attorney David Shoop for help.
