When you leave a close elderly relative in the care of someone else, it is hard to believe they will be treated callously or left to suffer alone. After all, many nursing homes and assisted living facilities are extremely expensive. Surely someone there will look after your loved one's well-being.
But tragically, it is actually very common for people to mistreat elderly residents in care centers. Many facilities are understaffed or hire unqualified personnel, making it easy to deny residents the attention they need and deserve.
Sometimes neglect will cause an elderly hospital patient to suffer from preventable bedsores or lead to malnutrition and dehydration, as it does every day in nursing homes around the country. Sometimes orderlies will financially exploit the elders in their charge. Even physical and sexual abuse occur at times in so-called "caregiving" facilities.
If you or a loved one has suffered from elder abuse or neglect in a nursing home or hospital, you need an attorney who can handle the personal injury claim so you get the compensation you deserve to help you move forward.
