Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Gainesville

Do You Know the Telltale Signs of Nursing Home Abuse?

There are specific things to look for when visiting loved ones in a nursing home. Inadequate staffing, marks or bruises, bed sores, belittling comments, and tense relationships are common signs that a problem could exist. There is simply no justification or excuse that's acceptable if you or a family member were victimized by nursing home neglect or abuse. Like many families, you may be trusting a nursing home or assisted living facility to provide your older loved ones with the professional care and attention they need. These elderly family members should receive the same quality of care as any other patient. But sadly, this is not always the case. 

If you or a loved one have experienced nursing home abuse or accidental death, contact a lawyer immediately to learn more about protecting your rights.

At Schackow & Mercadante, our attorneys have helped families with cases involving:

  • Physical abuse or injury
  • Verbal or emotional abuse
  • Sexual contact and abuse
  • Exploitation or theft of property
  • Failure to monitor or provide
  • Abandonment and elder neglect

Assisted Living Abuse

Many nursing home patients and residents in assisted living facilities receive the best of care. But, when nursing home abuse does occur, it is crucial to accurately document the events surrounding abuse, personal injuries, physical and emotional damages, or wrongful death

Remember — your family does not have to confront nursing home or assisted living administrators alone. If you suspect that nursing home abuse is happening to someone you love, there is something you can do about it.
