What To Do If A Nursing Home Injures Your Loved One
Nursing homes and their staff members are responsible for providing attentive and appropriate care to their residents. However, many nursing home facilities across Mississippi and Alabama suffer from hazardous conditions and ongoing abuse.
Discovering that the people you trusted to protect your loved one have violated your trust is heartbreaking. The attorneys at The Denson Law Firm, LLC, know that nursing home neglect and abuse is inexcusable. We have over 100 years of total legal experience and can work with you to hold the nursing home accountable for your loved one’s physical, mental or emotional injuries.
Nursing Homes May Breach Care Standards
Problems within nursing homes that can lead to serious injuries or loss of life include:
- Neglect of residents, which can lead to bedsores, dehydration, malnutrition, sepsis or other preventable health conditions
- Improper administration of medication
- Understaffing and poor employee training
- Rodent infestations, flooding, mold, unsteady walkways and other environmental hazards
- Poor food quality such as expired, undercooked or improperly stored food
- Physical, verbal, sexual or financial abuse, which can be particularly difficult to detect when a resident suffers from dementia or a mental disability
If the nursing home or its employees fail to provide reasonable care to your loved one, we can explain your options. There are special laws that protect residents as well as allow their families to help them get justice and compensation. With over 100 years of total experience, our personal injury lawyers have the knowledge and dedication to help you and your loved one.
