There Is A Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect Epidemic
As older loved ones need more and more care, most people must make a difficult decision: How do you adequately care for your loved one’s increasing needs while still providing for yourself and living your life? For many, the answer is placing your older family members in the care of a nursing facility.
Unfortunately, sometimes those facilities do not follow standards of care, and our elderly loved ones are harmed as a result.
Feel free to call my firm, the Law Offices of Villard Bastien, LLC, at 404-865-1952 and talk to me about how I can help you and your family in the wake of nursing home abuse and neglect.
Are You Concerned About The Quality Of Care Your Loved One Is Getting?
Unfortunately, even the most well-intentioned nursing facility is often over-burdened and understaffed. This often results in medical errors and opportunities for abuse. Experiencing concern is normal. You should call an attorney if you see consistent patterns of abuse or neglect, including:
- Recurrent bed sores or ulcers
- Unaddressed issues with medication, including misdosing of medications and unnecessary treatment
- Unexplained bruising or injuries
- Missing valuables or discrepancies with bills and bank accounts
- Behavioral changes, especially in response to a particular person
With my nearly 25 years of experience in a wide range of legal areas and personal commitment to community, you can breathe a little easier knowing I am representing you.
