Nursing home abuse and neglect is a serious problem that is all too often caught too late before damage is done. The regulatory agencies cannot catch every act of abuse. Our firm has handled cases of nursing home abuse in the past for clients who discovered that their loved ones were in terrible condition.
Stories about nursing home abuse hit the news all the time. A nursing home in Louisville, KY, is having its federal funding cut after investigators found horrible conditions within the home. The 125-person facility was described as “filthy, unsanitary, and dangerous” due to insect infestations, unattended injuries, and staff shortages.
It is natural to feel angry when such things are discovered. We expect nursing homes to take care of our loved ones when we cannot. We rely on their medical expertise to keep our loved ones healthy and active through old age. When this trust is violated, the nursing home must be punished.
