A wrongful-death lawsuit holds a nursing home accountable

Nursing home abuse and neglect are two things that you never want to have to deal with. When you entrust your loved one's care to another party, you expect that they will provide fair services to your loved ones and help when it's needed. After all, that's what nurses and providers are paid to do.

Abuse and neglect can't be ignored: Protect an elder's rights

In nursing homes, there are two negative things that can happen: abuse and neglect. Abuse is typically seen as an intentional act, whereas neglect occurs because an elder is not being treated or taken care of due to oversights or mistakes. However, the terms can actually be interchanged and may refer to the same kinds of situations.

What should you know about a nursing home abuse lawsuit?

Nursing home abuse and neglect are not quite the same thing in most people's minds. Abuse feels like it is aggressive or violent, while neglect is complete insensitivity to another person's needs. In either case, any action that leads to the harm of an elderly person in a nursing home could be called abuse or neglect.

Nursing homes fail to report all instance of potential abuse

As you may suspect, the reality of nursing home abuse is that abuse and neglect are often underreported in nursing homes. Patients may fear retaliation, people may not know that their loved ones are suffering and even the staff may attempt to cover up wrongdoing.

3 reasons a loved one may be unhappy at a nursing home

When you go visit your loved one in their nursing home, it does not take long to see that they're not happy. What you don't know is why. They won't or can't tell you. That can be an issue when the elderly have degenerative brain diseases and similar disorders. Therefore, you have to figure it out on your own.

Abuse and neglect: Know what steps to take next

You want your loved one to receive the best possible care anytime they need assistance. This includes when they have to move into assisted living or a nursing home. They're not capable of doing everything for themselves any longer, so you expect those you pay for their care to provide it happily.
