Stop nursing home neglect before it begins

People are entitled to safety and respect regardless of age or living arrangements. Although elder abuse in nursing homes is a relatively rare violation of a resident's or family's trust, it still poses a significant problem in Florida, home to the largest senior population in the United States.

Sepsis and broken bones are key signs of nursing home abuse

Nursing homes are meant to be restful places where patients and senior residents can expect a peaceful and supportive environment. This need is so crucial that any breach of trust by a nursing home visitor or caregiver must be reported to the appropriate authorities for the good of the victim and the community.

New case reveals extent of long-term care abuse

Nursing home neglect is, by its nature, a hidden problem. It is difficult to take a clear look at the dangers inherent in denying or forgetting care for seniors who are reliant on professional caregivers. This is why failure to properly care for nursing home residents should be brought to the attention of law enforcement.

Why you need to look for signs of nursing home abuse

You may hear stories of nursing home abuse in Florida every day on the news. The thought of it hitting so close to home is hard to believe. You may think your elderly parent is safe from harm in a nursing home because she or he has not had anything bad to say. However, you should not wait for your loved one to draw your attention to the danger he or she may be in. There is always the possibility your parent is suffering at the hands of his or her caregiver.

Arbitration changes nursing home abuse cases

Residential senior living is a comfortable and efficient choice for millions of senior Floridians, and many nursing homes provide a place to live and a place to work for many across Florida. These institutions require fair oversight and the expectation of safety, because "our loved ones are there and we need to hold nursing homes accountable."

Investigation into elder abuse shows pattern of behavior

A man native to New York who spent decades in Florida is being investigated in the Sunshine State in connection to the recent death of an elderly relative. The suspect and his wife arrived in his native state from Florida last summer to act as caregivers for his 95-year-old grandmother, who was suffering from dementia.
