Washington, D.C. Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Fighting Elder Abuse & Neglect in Nursing Homes

Moving an elderly loved one into a nursing home or long-term care facility is a difficult decision for any family. We put a lot of trust in these institutions to keep our loved ones safe and well cared for.

Unfortunately, these facilities – many of them for-profit corporations – sometimes fail to provide elderly and disabled residents with the quality care they need. Because they may prioritize profits over residents’ well-being, nursing homes are often understaffed or they hire inexperienced or unqualified staff members. This leaves residents without the proper care and assistance. In the worst cases, this puts residents at risk of abuse.

If you or someone you love suffered neglect or abuse in their long-term care facility, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation with our nursing home abuse attorneys in Washington, D.C. For over 65 years, Ashcraft & Gerel has been providing a voice to the injured victims of others’ negligence and wrongdoing. We are proud to stand up for nursing home residents who have been hurt by the facilities meant to care for them.

Nursing Home Residents Deserve High-Quality Care

When elderly and disabled residents in care facilities and assisted living homes do not receive the attention and medical care they need, serious injury or illness can occur. It is important to be on the lookout for potential signs of neglect and abuse and to speak often with your loved one in a nursing home to ensure that they are being looked after properly.

Common examples of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Falls due to lack of staff attention
  • Malnutrition
  • Bedsores
  • Sexual assault
  • Financial abuse
  • Bruises and marks made by physical restraints
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Infections and preventable illnesses
  • Dehydration
  • A change in personality or attitude
