Some of the most vulnerable in our society are the elderly who are unable to care for themselves. Often these individuals are placed in nursing homes by well-intentioned family members who rely upon the nursing home for the care and treatment of their loved one. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect is a real thing that occurs on a daily basis. Over the years, I have personally handled numerous nursing home cases involving abuse and neglect including the following:
- horrendous bedsores/pressure sores/decubitus ulcers
- assaults and rapes
- drug errors
- dehydration and starvation
- and other unfortunate cases of abuse and neglect on the elderly
In my experience, most of the families who pursue a potential nursing home case do not pursue these cases for monetary satisfaction but, instead, want to send a message to the nursing home and make sure the neglect and abuse does not occur to another individual. They believe that their case will send a message to the nursing home that abuse and neglect will not be tolerated, especially where it involves the elderly.
