Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect

We represent victims and their families for injuries and unfortunate deaths which were caused by the neglect of nursing homes. Nearly two million Americans live in nursing homes, yet recent studies indicate that some 90% of all nursing homes are understaffed. Under-staffing leads to resident inattention, which can lead to dehydration, malnutrition, medication administration errors and bedsores. Federal laws, rules and regulations make clear that a resident who enters a nursing home without bedsores should not develop bedsores. Unfortunately, thousands of residents are severely injured or die as a result of infections from bedsores, usually caused by a failure to turn and reposition a resident who is otherwise unable to help themselves. Dehydration and malnutrition can result due to the nursing home's failure to take the appropriate time and effort to feed the resident, and otherwise confirm that the resident is receiving a balanced diet. This is likewise directly attributable to under-staffing, and often a corporate directive to put profits ahead of patient care.

Our lawyers adhere to the idea that our elderly have a right to be treated with dignity, honor, good care and respect. The idea that the elderly are placed in nursing homes "to die" is unacceptable. This segment of our society is our most important, and should be treated as such. Our lawyers take great pride in handling these cases on behalf of families whose loved ones have been harmed, in an effort to hopefully force the nursing home industry to clean up its act and provide the level of care, treatment and staffing that the residents deserve.
