Don’t Let the Nursing Home Get Away with Abuse or Neglect

Jan 31, 2018 | Nursing Home Abuse

Share

Nursing homes are designed and staffed to take care of people who aren’t always capable of caring for themselves. Because of the aging population in the U.S., nursing homes are more in demand than ever, and costs have risen accordingly. Some families may even have difficulty finding rooms for their loved ones in nearby facilities due to many nursing homes being at capacity.

When families finally find a facility for a family member, they expect him or her to receive excellent care and attention. But that doesn’t always happen. Whether it’s due to poor staff training or staff shortages, some residents are neglected or even actively abused by medical professionals and caregivers at nursing homes.

At Stewart & Stewart, we know how devastating it is when families find out their loved ones were harmed by those who were supposed to care for them. It’s a significant betrayal of trust, ethics, and morals, and the worst part is that it may continue to happen—even if you move your loved one to another facility.

An Indiana nursing home abuse attorney is ready to fight for families like yours, as shining a light on the mistreatment of one patient can help many. Don’t delay if you suspect your loved one is being mistreated at his or her nursing facility. Call us today for a free consultation to find out how we can put our years of experience to work for you.
