The Horrifying Reality Of Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect

Nursing home residents are among the most vulnerable members of society. They often require round-the-clock care, attentive supervision and specialized equipment to meet their basic needs.

When these people become victims of abuse or neglect, they often don't have the ability to speak up for themselves. It falls to family members — adult children, spouses and other loved ones — to be their voice.

Taking Effective Action To Protect Your Loved One

Nothing is more horrifying than learning that your loved one has been mistreated in the very facility that was supposed to care for them. You may feel powerless and betrayed — especially if your concerns are ignored or diminished.

At Peddicord & Townsend LLC, we can help you take swift and effective action to protect your loved one and hold the nursing home accountable.

We believe there is no excuse for mistreatment of residents in professional care facilities. Sadly, far too many nursing homes don't properly staff or equip their facilities to deliver the quality of care they promise. Residents end up suffering from lack of care or outright abuse, resulting in:

  • Bedsores (decubitus ulcers)
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Serious falls
  • Severe illness due to misdiagnosis, untreated infections, medication errors or other medical mistakes
  • Broken bones, bruises and emotional trauma

Because they already have fragile underlying health conditions, some victims never recover from this horrifying mistreatment. Our lawyers handle both fatal and nonfatal cases with care, compassion and determination.
