Skilled Representation from Goeing Goeing & McQuinn PLLC

Seniors are entitled to enjoy their "golden years," but advanced age can expose the elderly to dangers posed by negligent nursing home care and abusive mistreatment by nursing home staff. Residents of nursing homes often suffer from some level of impaired mental or physical capacity so nursing homes provide assistance with their basic needs. This impairment and the dependency it creates can leave nursing home residents at-risk for being victimized by inadequate care or abusive treatment. Because residents in nursing homes may face challenges in perceiving, comprehending or communicating abuse and neglect, they are especially vulnerable.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing homes have an obligation to provide reasonable care for elderly residents over whom they assume a caretaking responsibility. Members of the nursing home staff and affiliated medical professionals may be liable for failing to meet the needs of residents. Nursing home negligence typically involves failure to provide for basic essential needs, such as hygiene, hydration, nutrition, safety, medication and other necessities.

Common types of nursing home abuse may include the following:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Abandonment

While nursing homes were at one time run locally by those trained in the health care industry, the demographics of nursing ownership have changed in recent years. Many large corporations run by those with virtually no experience in the health care industry are acquiring nursing homes to upgrade the facility and sell the facility for a profit. These nursing homes are often woefully understaffed. Insufficient and poorly trained staffing is by far the most serious cause of nursing home negligence.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

If you think your loved one’s nursing home may be providing a substandard level of care to your elderly family member, watch out for various signs of nursing home abuse.

Signs of nursing home abuse can include the following:

  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration
  • Sudden Weight Loss
  • Lack of Hygiene
  • Withdrawn Attitude
  • Bruises
  • Restraint Marks on Wrists
  • Uncharacteristic Financial Activity

Don’t hesitate to get legal help if you suspect abuse is to blame.
