Nursing Home Neglect

As background, I have handled 500+ nursing home investigations, claim reviews, and lawsuits in well over a dozen states around the country.  If this summary or my below referenced articles do not answer your question, you are invited to contact me for a free consultation.  With that said, let me outline nursing home neglect and how it fits into the larger picture of nursing home litigations and cases.

There are a variety of ways in which bad nursing homes hurt the residents who entrust their safety to those facilities.  Those include medical malpractice errors, sexual assaults, physical abuse, and last but not least, neglect.

Neglect is a category of nursing home negligence which concerns a nursing homes disregard or factual abandonment of a resident.  That would include things such as:

◊   Emotional Abuse




  Bathing / Hygiene

  Nurses Not Checking on Resident

I address these issues in the below articles.

If you’re doing research to determine if the nursing home did something wrong, based on my vast experience investigating nursing homes, the answer is almost always a solid yes.

But that’s not the key question.  If you’re searching for justice to make right the wrongs the nursing home forced your loved one to suffer, the correct question is whether you have a viable claim.

Claim viability extends far beyond confirmation of neglect or breaches in medical standards of care.  Viability analysis is a flexible measure and needs a 360 degree understanding of the claim.

When you are ready, I am on standby for you  Day or night, I invite you to call me for a free consultation to find out if there is sufficient viability to warrant a litigation driven investigation into the harms and suffering your loved one endured at the hands of a nursing home.
