Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers in California

Quality Legal Guidance Throughout Your Case

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 nursing home neglect. It is emotionally difficult to cope with the fact that your elderly loved one will be dependent on individuals you do not know, and you 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. In a survey, it was concluded that every one out of three nursing home facilities have been involved in elder abuse due to neglect in the past.

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

At Lanzone Morgan, we are personally committed to pursuing justice for all abused elders. If you or an elderly person close to you is facing abuse, be sure to call us at (562) 512-5505 to speak with our legal team today!

Signs of Nursing Home Neglect

“Neglect” means the failure of a caregiver to provide food, shelter, clothing, medical services, or health care for a person who is unable to care for themselves.

Nursing home neglect can be confirmed if you see the following symptoms:

  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Infections
  • Incorrect dose or overdose of medication
  • Lack of diagnosis or treatment

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