Neglect In Nursing Homes And Care Facilities: A Serious Problem

I neglect

As our loved ones grow older, they often confront health problems that require a greater level of care than they — or we — can provide. Perhaps Alzheimer’s or dementia has taken a toll on their mental clarity. Or maybe a broken hip has immobilized them, making it impossible to do daily tasks on their own.

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities exist precisely to care for the most vulnerable members of society. They’re supposed to be safe havens for patients.

Sadly, some facilities don’t take their responsibilities seriously. They may be more concerned about their own financial success than about their patients’ well-being. As a result, they’re overcrowded and understaffed. Many simply don’t hire the right staff to ensure that residents’ needs are met. Patients end up suffering consequences that were entirely preventable, including serious injuries and life-threatening complications from:

  • Falls
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Infections
  • Bedsores
  • Wandering
  • Failure to transfer to a hospital or better-equipped facility

We’ll Take Your Concerns Seriously

At the Florida law firm of Ford, Dean & Rotundo, P.A., we believe every resident deserves the highest possible quality of care. No patient should have to endure abuse or neglect. No family should have to come to the horrific realization that their loved one was mistreated.

If you have concerns about neglect, we’ll take them seriously. Our lawyers will work with medical experts to conduct a complete investigation. We’ll gather evidence to build a strong case and hold the care facility accountable.

We’re not afraid to stand up against nursing homes, assisted living facilities and their insurers. Our attorneys have fought these institutions in serious abuse and neglect cases, and we have won millions of dollars on behalf of victims and their families.

To find out how we can help give your loved one a voice, please call 305-670-2000 or reach out to our Miami-based office online. You won’t have to pay anything upfront for experienced legal guidance.
