What Is Nursing Home Abuse?
Unfortunately, the elderly are a group of people that may have a lot of vulnerabilities. Because of this, nursing home abuse can take on many forms. Nursing home abuse and neglect are both considered negligent and you have the right to file a lawsuit for damages against the guilty party.
Nursing home abuse can include any of the following:
- Lack of proper food or hydration
- Lack of the proper medications
- Neglecting to changed soiled dressings
- Sexual abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Physical abuse
- Wrongful death (in severe situations)
When to Seek Legal Help in an Elder Abuse Case
Any time that you notice a severe change in behavior or increased anxiety from your loved ones, you may want to have them evaluated by an outside physician. It is possible that those changes are occurring because your family member isn't getting the care they need or is being physically or mentally abused.
If you are concerned about your loved one's care, never hesitate to seek help from other physicians or the nursing home administration. Then, seek legal help from our Boca Raton attorney. At Canter Law, we have the experience and tenacity to help you seek financial restitution for your loved one. This compensation can help you bring the guilty to justice and earn more financial support in order to get your loved one the care they deserve.
