Nursing Home Negligence
Cases involving mistakes made by staff or medical personnel in nursing home facilities, including abuse or neglect, missed or incorrect medications and other malpractice.
The decision to place a family member in a nursing home is an extremely difficult one; primarily for the concerns with the type of care your loved one would receive. Unfortunately, those concerns are all too real because of the prevalence of nursing home negligence.
The National Center on Elder Abuse estimates that anywhere from 2% to 10% of elders in nursing homes are abused and that between one and two million Americans age 65 or older have been injured, exploited or otherwise mistreated by someone on whom they depended for care or protection.
Nursing home negligence can include physical abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, abandonment, or financial or material exploitation.
