New York Attorney Representing Nursing Home Neglect Victims
When you searched for a long-term care home for your aging and ailing parent or spouse, you were no doubt careful in your selection process. You and your aging or disabled relative may well have wanted to avoid the need for assisted living or nursing home residency, but in consultation with doctors and other professionals, it was decided that this was the best option for your family.
You rightfully expected that the nursing home that you selected would ensure proper care of the elderly or disabled person in your family. You expected that standards of care would be followed, regulations would be adhered to and that your family member would be well cared for.
But now your family has experienced the shock of discovering that your husband, wife, mother or father was neglected or abused while in a nursing home, in one or more of the following ways:
- He or she was malnourished.
- He or she was allowed to become dehydrated.
- He or she developed decubitus ulcers (bedsores)
- He or she fell as a result of missing bedrails or standard precautionary procedures.
- Carelessness on the part of nursing staff resulted in medication errors.
- He or she was sexually abused by staff.
