Philadelphia Lawyer Nursing Home Abuse And Negligence
Nursing Home Negligence is becoming more and more common as the background population becomes older and older. Unlike other societies where the elderly are cared for in the home, in the United States, many elderly people are relegated to Nursing Homes. Unfortunately, your parent or loved one is left in the hands of strangers who may or may not care much for their well being. At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, PC, we empathize with what you may be going through when you find that your loved one has been neglected.
You want answers and we get them for you!
Many people who discover that their loved one has been neglected learn about the abuse when they visit the nursing facility. Unlike other places, nursing home employees are very good at covering up what would otherwise be viewed as outright neglect. When prospective clients come to our office, they often tell stories about their loved one being mentally beaten, physically neglected and in many cases, physically harmed.
Here are some of the ways that family members learn of the abuse.
- The home is fined upon inspection by the state agency involved;
- The home is required to place immediate family members on notice if the matter involves their loved one.
- There is a whistleblower identified and who has come forward.
Other ways families learn about neglect is by seeing the loved one with:
- Bed Sores
- Mental decline
