Our firm represents victims of nursing home negligence, abuse and malpractice. Nursing homes and long term care facilities are charged with the duty to provide a safe and healthy environment for its residents. Unfortunately, the level of care often falls below good and accepted standards of care and in many instances violates Federal, State and Local laws, statutes and regulations.
We represent clients and their family and loved ones in the following types of nursing home cases:
- Pressure Ulcers, Bedsores, Decubitus Ulcers – all three are interchangeable terms and refer to often preventable skin break down on areas of the body where there are boney prominences, such as heels and lower back or sacral area.
- Resident falls
- Elopement, which is when a resident lacks mental capacity and wanders from the facility due to lack of supervision
- Neglect and Abuse
- Assaults on Residents
- Injury or Death due to Poor Nutrition and Inadequate Hydration
