Dedicated to Protecting the Elderly
If you have helped your elderly loved one move into a nursing home or assisted living facility, you have put your faith in the establishment to properly care for your loved one. Nursing homes are expected to provide adequate care and ensure the safety of all residents. Unfortunately, some elders suffer at the hands of negligent or abusive nursing home employees.
If you or your loved one has been affected by nursing home abuse, do not wait to reach out to a qualified attorney. Our nursing home abuse attorneys in Landover are here to help you hold the facility accountable and fight for the compensation you deserve.
How Abuse & Neglect Run Rampant in Nursing Homes
Many nursing homes and long-term care facilities for the elderly are owned by for-profit corporations seeking to maximum profits. As a result, many nursing homes are understaffed or are staffed by unqualified or inexperienced employees. Too often, this leads to abuse or neglect within the facility.
Residents might not receive the assistance they need with routine activities, such as eating, bathing, or walking. They might not receive the medical treatment or supervision they need to remain healthy. In the worst cases, they might even suffer physical, emotional, financial, or sexual abuse.
Sometimes, abuse and neglect go unnoticed. Elderly residents might be unable or unsure how to report their suffering.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home facility, be on the lookout for warning signs of neglect and abuse including:
- Wounds or cuts
- Unsanitary conditions in their room or in the facility
- A change in your loved one’s personality or mood
- Malnutrition or starvation
- Significant weight loss
- Physical restraints
