Dealing With Improper Treatment In Nursing Homes

Nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other senior citizen facilities are required to meet certain standards of care. When nursing home administrators fail to provide a safe and clean environment for seniors, residents are put at great risk.

If your loved one has suffered abuse or neglect at a nursing home, obtain experienced legal counsel. The lack of credible witnesses in nursing homes can make proving fault especially complicated. At Chiariello & Chiariello, we have more than 50 years of experience proving fault, even when liability is initially unknown. Our legal team has the skills and legal resources to take on highly complicated cases in pursuit of protecting your family's best interests.

Neglect And Abuse Can Take Different Forms

Nursing home neglect and elder abuse can take on many forms, including:

  • Failure to prevent bedsores
  • Under or over medicating
  • Nursing home errors leading to dehydration or malnutrition
  • Failure to prevent falls leading to fractured or broken hips
  • Lack of proper cleanliness
  • Staph infections
  • Sexual assault
  • Assault and battery
  • Failure to properly monitor patients

The frail and elderly are among the most vulnerable members of our society. Families trust caregivers to keep their loved ones safe. When nursing homes abuse that trust by mistreating residents, shouldn't they be held responsible? We think they should. We have a long and successful history of standing up for the rights of the injured and vulnerable.
