When loved ones are placed in a position of care in a nursing home, the expectation is that they will be living in comfort and ease. However, sometimes it is apparent that loved ones are not receiving the care that they were promised. If you have placed a member of your family in a nursing home and it is abusing its responsibilities, then you have options you can consider. Nursing home abuse is a form of medical negligence and may also give rise to claims under the elder abuse statutes. If an elderly member of your family is being abused, then there are ways to correct the situation.
Holding abusive nursing homes legally responsible takes professional knowledge and experience. Correcting the abusive care that loved ones have received requires that an attorney prove the negligence and pursue the appropriate legal remedy. The Jensen Phelan Law Firm, P.C. has had over 39 years of experience fighting against elder abuse. You can read about one such case here.
