Florida Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Taking a Stand Against Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
As the population ages, more families of the elderly are relying on assisted living or nursing homes to provide medical care by skilled nurses and caretakers. Many families are not able to provide daily care, so they count on these facilities to provide qualified services to ensure their loved ones receive the care they deserve. It is no wonder that discovering that your loved one has suffered from nursing home abuse or neglect is one of the most distressing moments a person can experience.
- Some examples of nursing home abuse and neglect include:
- Sexual abuse
- Physical abuse
- Over sedation
- Emotional or verbal abuse
- Medical malpractice
Many elderly members of these nursing home communities will not speak out about these instances of abuse for a number of reasons. They either feel that one will believe them, that no one cares, or too ashamed to say the words out loud. It’s important that you pay attention to the signs, such as strange, subdued behavior around a certain staff member, and be sure that your loved ones are safe.
By taking legal action in cases of abuse and neglect of the elderly, you can also prevent abuse and neglect from occurring to other nursing home residents in the future.
