Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

As more Americans are living longer, more families are turning to nursing homes and assisted living facilities to care for family members. This increase in demand for long-term care has unfortunately encouraged an increase of nursing home abuse and neglect cases. One of the most disturbing aspects of nursing home negligence is that society"s most vulnerable members are taken advantage of at a place meant to be a trusted home. A common misconception is that nursing home abuse only involves physical abuse. Our firm has experience in a wide variety of nursing home negligence cases, including:
– Physical abuse
– Sexual assault
– Mental or psychological abuse
– Failure to respond to changing medical conditions
– Improper medication or medication mismanagement
– Inadequate employee background checks
– Inappropriate use of physical restraints

If you see signs including malnutrition, dehydration, ulcers, bed sores or sudden changes in behavior, a closer look into that patient"s care should be taken. We are dedicated to helping nursing home residents and their families with cases of negligence. We seek to get the respect, response, and results your loved one deserves. If you know or suspect your family member has been a victim of nursing home negligence, call us at KP Law as soon as possible to end the suffering.
