CALIFORNIA NURSING HOME ABUSE LAWYERS
Serving the Abused and their Families throughout Orange County including the Riverside, Anaheim and Santa Ana Areas
Each year millions of Americans trust nursing home and assisted living facilities with taking care of their elderly or loved ones. Rarely do people realize that nursing home abuse occurs at an extremely high rate. Some consider the problem to be a silent epidemic spreading throughout our nation. Unfortunately, abuse at some nursing homes leads to fatalities. The emotional impact on family members is immense. As such it is imperative that loved ones are constantly monitored to assure they are safe and healthy.
At nursing care facilities the injuries suffered by your loved ones may not be easily identifiable. Sometimes elders are ashamed to admit to the suffering they are enduring at the hands of staff members, other times they are fearful. It is important to ask questions and look for signs of abuse. Common forms of abuse at nursing facilities include:
- Physical abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Improper maintenance of facility
- Inadequate supervision or neglect
- Improper nutrition
- Improper amount of medication
- Sexual abuse
- Bed Sores
- Wrongful Death
Elder abuse is on the rise and getting worse. The national statistics do not show many unreported cases. In addition to civil action for damages, medical facilities and nursing homes can be held criminally responsible for neglect.
