When we place a parent or grandparent in the hands of a nursing home, we trust the nursing home staff will care for them as we would. Sadly, this is not always the case. Sometimes the elderly are neglected or intentionally abused, both physically and emotionally.
It is an unfortunate truth that the victims of nursing home abuse or negligence are often individuals least capable of defending themselves or of speaking out to someone. Usually, the best way to discover nursing home negligence is through signs of the victim.
Signs of nursing home neglect include:
- Bed sores or lesions
- Broken bones
If you have reason to believe that someone you love has been the victim of nursing home neglect, you need to contact an experienced nursing home negligence attorney in your area to evaluate your claim.
