Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Nursing Home Negligence Attorney — Philadelphia
When you choose a nursing home facility for an aging loved one, you do so with care, ensuring that the facility’s staff observes the highest standards. You visit your relatives periodically and are pleased with the personal attention and assistance given to them. Then one day, you discover your loved one’s condition has worsened or you discover a bedsore or an unsanitary condition. The trust you have placed in this facility has been broken, and you may even feel responsible.
At the Baldo Law Office, we understand the difficult decision that families must make in arranging care for elder members. If your loved ones have been injured while in a nursing home or elder care facility, or they show signs of abuse or neglect, contact our firm for a free initial consultation.
Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse
Nursing home workers, while skilled and usually highly trained, are not typically medical professionals. Unfortunately, the elder care industry is a stressful and emotionally draining industry with a very high turnover rate. Even in the best of facilities, stress can lead to poor employee screening and failure to properly monitor vulnerable patients can result in serious injuries to elder residents. These injuries can include:
- Bedsores or pressure sores (also known as decubitus ulcers)
- Deep vein thrombosis / blood clots
- Ignoring doctor’s orders
- Sexual Assault
- Verbal or Physical Abuse
