Putting a loved one into a nursing home is never an easy decision to make,
nor is it anyone’s first choice. Having your loved one’s medical
needs taken care of on a day-to-day basis is imperative, though it can
take a lot of time, energy, and resources, which most people don’t
have. This is why so many people decide to put their trust into the employees
of nursing facilities to take care of their elderly loved ones.
Despite the fact you are paying to have your loved one taken care of in
a professional manner, sometimes it is just simply not the case. Elder
abuse at nursing homes is on the rise, and these victims are speaking
up a fraction of the time at which these acts are occurring. At Jordan
Law Center, our
personal injury lawyer believes in fighting for justice by advocating for the voiceless.
Some examples of nursing home domestic violence include, but are not limited to:
- Emotional abuse, such as tormenting, ignoring, humiliating, or ignoring
- Physical abuse, such as bruises, cuts, broken bones, bleeding, etc.
- Neglect, such as unsanitary living conditions, medications not being administered
properly, malnourishment, etc.
- Sexual abuse, such as bruises or bleeding near genital areas, venereal
disease, forcible participation or viewing of pornographic acts, etc.
- Financial exploitation, such as stealing money, forging signatures, stealing
the patient’s identity, or misusing the elder’s checks, accounts,
or credit cards.
If you or a loved one has suffered any of the above, you may be entitled
to a valid legal claim of nursing home domestic violence. Nursing homes
should never be a dangerous place for your elderly loved one. At Jordan
Law Center, our personal injury attorney refuses to sit back idly while
these abuses occur on a daily basis to innocent, elderly patients across
the country. We believe in aggressively fighting for the compensation
these victims are rightfully entitled to.
