“Honor your father and mother.” How we care for our elders speaks volumes about our character as a society. Later in life, taking this command seriously and loving our parents, we do our best to make suitable arrangements when our parents must depend on others. You and your family make the difficult decision to place a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility, trusting that it will be a caring and professional environment. When this trust is violated, and injury or death follows from negligence or abuse, you need an attorney who will seek answers and accountability. It is unacceptable to put profit before patient safety, and nursing homes cannot be allowed to take short cuts on staffing, training, supervision, or regulations in a way that jeopardizes the health or lives of our most vulnerable.
Whether your family’s case deals with a fall, inattention to infections and bed sores, not properly caring for Alzheimer’s or dementia patients, cutting corners on staff or training, or even a case of intentional abuse from employees who never should have been hired in the first place, call on an experienced attorney for your family’s case. If you suspect that a loved one might be a victim of nursing home negligence, do not hesitate to seek the guidance and advice from a nursing home abuse attorney.
