Nursing Home Abuse
SIGNS OF NURSING HOME ABUSE
When our loved ones are no longer able to fully take care of themselves, we rely on nursing homes to provide a safe, nurturing environment. Our elderly loved ones in particular are among the most vulnerable citizens and deserve to be treated with absolute dignity and respect. If you or a loved one has been mistreated in a nursing home or if you suspect mistreatment, you need to contact a Ventura County elder abuse lawyer from our resolute firm right away. One of our hard-hitting attorneys will hold those responsible to account for their abusive behavior. Signs of nursing home abuse may include:
- Signs of physical neglect such as bruising or bed sores
- An apparent disregard to providing the necessities of daily living
- Failing to protect residents from health and safety hazards
- Signs of dehydration or malnutrition
- Unsanitary living conditions
- Problems with adhering to medication regimens
- Confining residents to their rooms
Of course it is also important to listen to your loved one and any concerns that they may have. Take their concerns seriously. While it is a frightening thought, the sad fact is that nursing home abuse is increasing even though enforcement seems to be decreasing. According to a 2005 study carried out by the California Healthcare Foundation, violations increased from 2001 to 2004 but actual citations and fines decreased. Our proven firm may be able to help you to fight for the rights of your loved one. There are more than 110,000 thousand people living in nursing homes and long-term care facilities in California. These are our most vulnerable citizens and our compassionate firm will aggressively protect the rights of you or a loved one who has been the victim of nursing home abuse.
