Caring family members bring their loved ones’ to nursing homes to get professional, around the clock care. The Nursing Home Reform Act, says that nursing homes “must provide services and activities to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each resident.” Unfortunately, many nursing homes in New York fall far short of this requirement. Pretty brochures, fancy lobbies and smiles often mask the neglect that occurs behind closed doors. Such mistreatment demands action, and Ardito Law Firm, P.C. will help you hold them accountable.
Nursing home neglect comes in many forms, including:
- Physical abuse and assault
- Sexual abuse
- Emotional abuse, either verbally or by neglect and inattention to residents
- Lack of care
- Negligent care
Nursing home injuries often occurs because of unskilled workers or doctors, lack of supervision and attention to patients, or overall poor management of the facility.
Injuries come in all forms, such as:
- Infections, either external or internal (sepsis, pneumonia, skin, urinary tract, etc.)
- Broken bones and head injuries due to falls
- Dehydration and Malnutrition
- Bedrail injuries
I am sad to say that we have seen far too many injuries from nursing home negligence to list them all here.
