Nursing Home Neglect

Fotolia_66897361_L-1-768x512.jpgA major concern people have when making the decision to move their loved one into a nursing home is that he or she will be neglected. As much as you want to trust that your loved one will be properly cared for by attentive staff in homes with sanitary conditions, there are many deficiencies in the system that may result in injury or death. Some of the most commonly seen signs of neglect in a nursing home include bedsores, contractures, and poor sanitary conditions. There also may be instances when the home fails to administer the appropriate medication or provide patients with meals in a timely manner.

You may be able to take legal action against a nursing home if you can prove that your loved one has been neglected. It is important that you have evidence of the neglect or abuse endured by your loved one. One of the most important steps you can take is to document neglect by taking pictures of unsanitary conditions, bedsores, or other concerning situations. Before jumping into litigation, you may want to share your findings with the management and see if they will improve the conditions.

If the nursing home staff does not address the issues, it may be time to consider legal action. There is no reason for your loved one to experience abuse and neglect. If you suspect that your loved one has been neglected by the staff in their nursing home, contact the experienced attorneys at Cohn Lifland to schedule a consultation.
