Injured Due to Nursing Home Neglect or Abuse? Contact Graves McLain for a Free Consultation.

Although most of the population does not recognize it, nursing home negligence has reached epidemic proportions across the United States. Our beloved aging population is not as safe as they should be although caregivers and healthcare providers for the elderly are duty-bound to maintain the wellbeing of anyone in their care. And, while we trust these caregivers to watch over our loved ones when we cannot, they may not be providing them the expected level of compassion or care that was previously promised or guaranteed. To make matters worse, the bulk majority of individuals living in assisted care have already experienced or seen nursing home neglect firsthand.

According to the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), around 95% of all nursing home residents have been neglected or have directly witnessed some form of neglect. Poor care levels can have severe consequences for our aging populations – ranging from distraught feelings to untimely or avoidable death. Neglect may involve not only a failure to provide various types of care a nursing home resident may require including medical neglect, neglect of personal hygiene, emotional neglect, or the neglect of basic needs. Some examples of nursing home neglect and abuse of the elderly cases include physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, healthcare fraud, or neglect/abandonment.
