California Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers

Holding Negligent Nursing Homes in California Accountable

It is not easy to transfer an elderly relative to a nursing home for fear that the level of care they receive will be inadequate or that they will be a victim of neglect. It is emotionally difficult to cope with your elderly loved one who will depend on individuals you do not know and do not necessarily trust.

However, when the time comes that you need to move your elderly relatives to a nursing home or skilled nursing facility (SNF), it is natural that you expect the best care and consideration from the facility you entrust with their care.

In the last decade, there have been many cases in which staff members of a skilled nursing facility or nursing home were involved in elder abuse. A survey concluded that every one of three nursing home facilities had been involved in elder abuse due to neglect in the past.

Suppose you suspect a loved one suffered emotional or physical abuse or even death due to neglect on the part of a nursing home facility. In that case, you should first report it to the California Department of Public Health.

While no amount of money or compensation can compensate for the trauma your loved one faced, you should still take legal action against the responsible person so this does not happen again.
