Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys in Lafayette

Placing your loved one in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or residential care facility is often a tough decision to make. Each year families across Louisiana must decide whether to admit their loved one into a facility ensuring the needs of their loved ones are taken care of daily. It is expected that these facilities are secure, staffed by trustworthy caretakers, and offer 24/7 care.

In most cases, these facilities provide excellent care, and the environment is safe, but there are still facilities where abuse and neglect are a common occurrence. Poorly trained medical staff and lack of attention result in the abuse and neglect demonstrated at nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Often our elderly loved ones are unable to communicate their wants and needs making it vital that the facilities staff is on high alert at all times. Each day due to unsatisfactory conditions, patients fall victim to nursing home neglect and abuse.
