Fighting Against Nursing Home Negligence And Abuse
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 or neglected. Unfortunately, Kentucky is not exempt from these statistics, and many loved ones discover that their loved ones have new illnesses or injuries and have genuine concerns.

Seeking Justice And Holding Nursing Homes Accountable
Nursing home negligence and abuse cases often involve mistakes or purposeful acts made by staff or medical personnel in nursing home facilities. Unlike other medical malpractice cases, nursing home negligence also includes failing to assist a resident with their daily needs.
Nursing home negligence can include:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional or psychological abuse
- Medication errors
- Sexual abuse
- Financial or material exploitation
In a nursing home negligence and abuse claim, you can fight for financial compensation for medical expenses, and pain and suffering. You can also use a claim to shed light on the mistreatment happening at the nursing home or long-term care facility, potentially saving other families the heartache you have suffered. By holding the responsible parties accountable, you can make Kentucky a safer place for elderly patients.
