Nursing Home Abuse

If your loved one was abused in a nursing home facility contact our Pennsylvania nursing home abuse attorneys now so we can help you.
HOW DOES NURSING HOME ABUSE OCCUR?
Large corporations have begun opening nursing homes at a large scale and the main goal is to make money, not care for your loved one. Not having enough qualified nurses and failing to properly train staff members has led to neglect, abuse, and serious injury and harm to the resident.
Under staffing has led to residents:
- Falling and breaking bones
- Suffering bedsores and ulcers
- Becoming malnourished and dehydrated
- Receiving the wrong medication or
- Receiving too much/too little of the medication they need.
What’s worse is that these facilities often get complaints and are made aware of the issues listed above but don’t do anything to correct them. When this happens, the facility may be required to compensate the residents who have endured abuse and neglect.
