If your loved one lives in a nursing home, you may worry
about their health and well-being. It can be difficult to trust doctors with
the lives of family members for treatments and procedures—let alone trust strangers
to care for a loved one 24/7. While most nursing homes provide residents with
excellent care and attention, some knowingly or unknowingly put residents’
health and even their lives in danger because they focus on profits over
Nursing homes are supposed to be safe places for elderly
residents and residents with serious health problems that need frequent
treatment and constant monitoring. But because nursing homes are a big business
that make a lot of profit off their residents, some operate with a desire to
make more money by keeping expenses down rather than making sure they provide
adequate care. That means they may hire underqualified employees, or they may
fail to hire enough staff members to give all residents the care they need.
When nursing homes aren’t adequately staffed, residents may
be abused and neglected. And when that happens, those nursing homes should be
held accountable. At Dudley DeBosier, our Louisiana nursing home abuse
attorneys have helped many families get compensation after their loved ones’
rights were violated in nursing homes, and we know what it takes to build
strong claims that get results.
Nursing home residents are vulnerable to mistreatment,
especially elderly residents and residents with serious health problems that
affect their cognitive abilities or their mobility. However, all nursing home
residents are at risk of different types of abuse including:
Neglect can take on a different form than abuse. However, it
can be just as devastating and harmful to residents. Types of neglect include:
If you suspect that your loved one is being mistreated at
their nursing home, it’s important to be on the lookout for signs or symptoms
that can be used as evidence in an abuse claim. However, not all cases of abuse
and neglect are obvious. Playing an active role in your loved one’s care can
help you quickly spot when something isn’t right—and allow you to get them help
as early as possible.
Accusing a nursing home of abusing or neglecting your loved
one is a difficult process—and it can be even more complicated if you try to
get compensation. Having a law firm with the resources and experience to take
on big nursing homes is often essential for maximizing your chances of getting
the money and justice your family deserves after your trust was violated.
At Dudley DeBosier, we know the steps to take to help
affected families and their loved ones when they experience nursing home abuse,
and that includes compiling evidence that leaves no doubt about what happened
or is continuing to happen in the facility. You’re going through enough
already—the last thing you need to deal with is the nursing home trying to
refute your claims when there’s plenty of evidence that shows what happened.
