Elderly or disabled people are more vulnerable to abuse and neglect than other demographics. If you have a family member living at a nursing home, assisted living facility, or other long-term care facility, you expect that they are in good hands and are receiving great care. Too often, this does not happen and abuse and neglect occur.
Bishop Legal represents clients who have suffered abuse and neglect from care facilities. We derive great satisfaction out of fighting for the rights of our elderly and disabled clients. We aggressively represent our clients to get them the financial compensation they deserve for the abuse and neglect suffered.
What To Look For
If you have a loved one in a care facility, be on the lookout for inadequate nursing home care. Your loved one may be ashamed to tell you what is occurring but it is important that you know the truth and that they are safe and protected. They may not even know their pain or injuries are being caused by the care facility.
Injuries resulting from nursing home abuse and neglect may include:
- Untreated bed sores and pressure ulcers
- Medication errors, which involves prescription overdose or insufficient dosage
- Illness or death caused by insufficient nutrition or dehydration
- Failure to follow a nursing care plan
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Misdiagnosis of a medical condition
- Failure to supervise/monitor resulting in a severe slip and fall
- Improper bed restraints
- Other nursing home neglect or abuse
