Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse

Far too many seniors are becoming victims of negligent treatment rendered by the caregivers paid to take care of them.

What Is Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Nursing home abuse and neglect can take many forms and not all of them are always easy to spot. Signs of abuse may include:
- broken bones
- torn clothing
- hair loss
Common signs of neglect may include:
- change in behavior
- bed sores
Most cases of elder abuse and neglect occur when patients are not properly supervised. A number of these cases affect individuals who are non-verbal, non-coherent, or unaware of what is going on. When you suspect your loved one could be a victim of abuse or neglect at their facility, contacting an attorney as soon as you become aware is important to determining your legal rights.
