Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse: Shameful And Illegal
Your elderly father now lives in a nursing home. You had initial misgivings about having him live there, but things seemed to be OK, at least for a while. During your recent visits, you notice bruises on his arms, bedsores on his back, as well as his hesitancy in talking about things. These are strong signs of nursing home abuse and neglect.
You don’t want to believe that your father is a victim, but he very well maybe. And so could other residents. Instances of nursing home abuse and neglect are not uncommon. But getting straight to the point: It is shameful, disrespectful and illegal. You need to protect your loved one from such medical malpractice, and you need a skilled and determined attorney who can help.
