Holding Nursing Home Caretakers Accountable
Nursing homes are a necessary and important part of our nation’s health care system. There comes a point when many families have to make the hard decision to entrust a loved one into the hands of professional caregivers. When that trust is betrayed, the results can be horrible for your loved one and for your family members.
The attorneys at Sweeney Julian understand that this is a difficult and emotional time. If you or a loved one has suffered from an injury on another person’s property, we want you to contact us to discuss your case with our lawyers.
Understanding Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse
Abuse and neglect in nursing homes is becoming all too frequent. States with restricted budgets often have difficulty monitoring homes. Families with few care options and elderly patients are often scared of retaliation if they report abuse. All too often, families and patients simply accept the abuse because they feel they don’t have any other options.
You don’t have to stand for this behavior. Our lawyers are ready to fight for the dignity and respect you and your loved ones deserve. Common problems facing residents are:
- Weight loss
- Pressure sores
- Pain management
You do have an option if you feel a loved one has suffered abuse or neglect in a nursing home. At Sweeney Julian, we will review your case to determine if negligence has occurred. Grieving families around the state are receiving compensation for pain, suffering and the untimely death of loved ones. More importantly, nursing homes are being held accountable for the incredible suffering they have caused to their patients and the families who entrusted their loved ones to the nursing home’s care.
