When You Think a Loved One has Been a Victim of Elder Abuse
At some point, a loved one may be placed in a nursing home for a rehabilitation or long term stay. The nursing home will receive money, either directly from your loved one, you or through some form of health insurance. In return, the nursing home must provide care and treatment that meets the standard of care. Sometimes, however, they do not, and at that moment, your loved one may suffer a broken hip (due to a fall), have bedsores (due to not being turned or repositioned appropriately), may be overmedicated, or may suffer some other physical or emotional injury due to some type of abuse or failure in care. At that point, if you suspect something is not appropriate, please feel free to give us a call to advise you on next steps.
