Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorneys in Lake Charles

Each year many families are faced with difficult decisions — whether or not to place their elderly loved one in a nursing home, residential care facility, or assisted living facility. When it becomes difficult for the elderly to maintain their day-to-day routine and needs, and the family isn’t able to provide 24-hour care, one of these facilities is usually the best option. Families hope and trust that the nursing home they choose is safe and offers excellent care.

In most cases, the nursing homes and assisted living facilities provide excellent care to their residents and patients, but there are still instances where abuse and neglect take place. Poorly trained medical staff and lack of attention are often common causes of neglect and abuse. Usually, the elderly have trouble or are unable to communicate their needs and wants clearly to their caretakers, which makes it essential that the staff is appropriately trained to handle these situations.

Accidents, intentional acts, and failures to act within a facility may result in a medical malpractice lawsuit. There is no doubt that nursing home neglect and abuse is a type of medical malpractice. Elderly residents may be hesitant to complain out of fear. For this reason alone, it is imperative that the family can recognize common signs of abuse and neglect. These signs include unexplained injuries, depression, loss of appetite, loss or lack of mobility, physical issues due to lack of nutrition, unsanitary living conditions, and poor personal hygiene. If you suspect that your loved one is the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, it’s important that you’re able to take the necessary steps to protect them.
