NURSING HOME ABUSE & NEGLECT
In Georgia and South Carolina, many residents are routinely injured because of nursing home abuse and neglect. We have handled numerous cases involving injuries such as avoidable bedsores, falls, dehydration, malnutrition and even wrongful death as a result of nursing home abuse and neglect. Understanding what happened is oftentimes much easier than understanding why it happened. That’s why we spend the extra time, effort and resources to discover why nursing home residents are abused and neglected. We investigate the background of the employees that are hired to care for the residents. We determine their level of qualification, training and experience, and we investigate the companies that hire the employees. Our extensive experience has helped us understand that most injuries in nursing homes do not come from uncaring nurses and aides. Rather, the chronic mismanagement of funds by corporate owners leads to understaffing and/or the hiring of unqualified staff.
If you've seen signs of staff negligence or abuse while visiting your loved one in a nursing home, contact us immediately. Many incidents of elder abuse are covered up as accidental falls, unavoidable bedsores or written off as a product of old age. We are ready to aggressively advocate on your behalf. Our efforts have led to successful results for families and residents.
