Retirement and nursing homes can fail to live up to their promises
Nursing homes are supposed to be safe havens for our elder loved ones, providing care and comfort in their golden years. All too often, however, nursing homes are scenes of negligence and malpractice. If you suspect a case of nursing home neglect or abuse, seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Call Largey Law at their offices in Tavares, Clermont or Inverness.
How common is nursing home neglect and abuse?
We cannot establish the true number of cases of elder abuse that actually occur because we cannot know how many go unreported. According to a report by the National Center on Elder Abuse, Bureau of Justice Statistics, reported cases of elders abused in a recent calendar year reached nearly 6 million.
How can I prove nursing home abuse or neglect?
To prove nursing home abuse, like any medical malpractice claim, you and your injury attorney must prove that your loved one suffered an injury as the direct result of nursing home staff providing care in ways that deviated from acceptable standards. The substandard care could result from negligence on the part of the employee or poor training or staffing procedures on the part of the home itself.
