Do You Have A Reliable Attorney For A Case Of Nursing Home Abuse?
Isn’t it unfortunate that despite the care facilities available that claim to provide exceptional residential, medical, and personal care services for the senior citizens, the elderly are amongst the most vulnerable groups for abuse?
The senior citizens are most commonly neglected and mishandled, which unfortunately is neither reported nor recorded.
The reason being, elderly registered with these care homes either do not have the mental capabilities to understand the situation, or they fear that may not get handled rightly in the future, in case they complain.
We understand that your busy routine might have compelled you to send your older family member to a nursing home, but mistreatment is unacceptable. Contact us if you want to file a case against such wrongdoers.

Types Of Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing homes are sanctuaries of peace and care; any willful act of harm to an individual enrolled with them can be categorized as abuse.
According to The Administration on Aging, nursing home abuse is defined as “the willful infliction of injury, unreasonable confinement, intimidation or cruel punishment with resulting physical harm, pain, or mental anguish or deprivation by a person, including a caregiver, of goods or services that are necessary to avoid physical harm, mental anguish, or mental illness”.
So, it can be concluded that the following acts are the types of nursing home abuse:
- Willful acts of harm
- Physical or mental damage
- Unavailability of items required to avoid a painful situation.
