Los Angeles Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Has a family member been the victim of nursing home abuse?

In today's fast-paced world, the tradition of community and family caring for elderly parents and grandparents has given way to organizations such as nursing homes or elder care centers taking care of the elderly instead. We trust these medical professionals and staff to care for our loved ones as we would. However, the reality of nursing home and elder care center life is tragically a far cry from the image of active, healthy, happy, elderly residents sharing the companionship of others their age.

In fact, reports show abuse and neglect are recorded against nearly one-third of all nursing home facilities in the country. All too often, the institutionalized loved one appears submissive, quiet, vacant and lifeless, staring into space or deeply introspective and withdrawn. These conditions are brought on by instances of:

  • Physical neglect
  • Sexual abuse
  • Prescription drug errors and overmedicating
  • Hazardous procedures and safety conditions
  • Threat and use of painful and degrading restraints

What's truly shocking is that the report suggests that only a fraction of actual instances of abuse are reported. Don't let your loved one become a statistic. If you suspect your elderly family member has fallen victim to nursing home abuse, report the matter to authorities immediately. Then contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to determine your rights and options for recourse against any negligent party.

Treatment such as this is an overt betrayal of the duty of care and procedure these facilities and their staff pledge to nursing home residents and their families.

While some symptoms are obvious, like broken bones, bruises, cuts, bedsores, scars and poor hygiene, others can be hidden and difficult to detect, even when family members communicate regularly with their loved ones. Overmedicating, for instance, can inhibit your parent or grandparent from communicating grievances, speaking clearly, or even speaking at all. A wrongful death of an elderly resident can be especially difficult to anticipate in such circumstances.

For these reasons, it is vital to seek a knowledgeable Los Angeles personal injury lawyer from the Lagstein Law Firm when your loved one has suffered injury and trauma due to negligence.
