Nursing Home Negligence And Abuse Is Unacceptable
How a society cares for its elderly or sick is a measure of its soul and character. We have an increasingly aging population that needs professional care in order to keep up with the necessary aspects of daily living.
Statistics indicate that there is an ever-growing likelihood that a loved one, grandparent, parent, brother, sister or even child may require this type of care. One day, unfortunately, it may even be you. The fact is when we are in need of such care we are at the most vulnerable time in our lives.
We become totally dependent upon the care, skill, compassion and goodwill of those facilities and caretakers we entrust to take care of us and our loved ones at the moment of greatest need. Unfortunately, nursing home facilities all too often violate this most sacred trust in caring for our most vulnerable.
Is Your Loved One Being Mistreated In A Health Care Facility?
At Martello & LaMagna, P.C., we take it as a special privilege to represent the victims of heartless and greedy nursing homes that are more interested in their bottom line profits than the patients they are hired to care for.
The elderly and infirm can be exposed to numerous mistreatments:
- Nutritional neglect
- Physical and emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Medical neglect
Because of their lack of due care and neglect, your loved one can be unnecessarily forced to suffer:
- Physical injuries
- Emotional injuries
- Drastic weight loss
- Wrongful death
Because our loved ones cannot care for themselves, it is the responsibility of the nursing home to:
- Stop preventable falls
- Stop preventable bedsores
- Stop preventable injuries
- Maintain proper nutrition
- Maintain consistent medication schedule
- Maintain proper emotional support
The nursing home is responsible for a comprehensive individualized care plan for your loved one tailored to their individual needs.
We at Martello & LaMagna, P.C., will take steps to safeguard your loved ones. We will take a critical look at how your loved one is being treated and hold the nursing home accountable for their callous negligence. We will take measures to put your family member in safe care and obtain damages to pay for the proper treatment and the pain and suffering they endured.
