Nursing Home Negligence

As our aging population grows, more families are faced with making decisions about long-term nursing care for ourselves, our parents and our grandparents. Families invest significant time and resources when choosing a nursing home for an elderly loved one who can no longer live independently.

Nursing homes have policies, procedures and staffing requirements that they must follow in order to ensure the safety and security of our loved ones. When these policies and procedures are not being properly followed, it can result in serious harm, including injuries, infections, emotional harm and even wrongful death. 

Nursing home negligence can include improper supervision, personal hygiene neglect, medical neglect, emotional and social neglect and general neglect of basic needs.

Unfortunately, nursing home litigation can also include abuse, which is a specific intent to cause harm to a nursing home resident. It can include physical assault, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and improper use of restraints.

If you suspect any issues of neglect or abuse at a nursing home, you should consult with a nursing home negligence lawyer to discuss your options. In an emergency situation, you should immediately contact the police.

The lawyers at Hoffman Law have the expertise and experience needed to effectively represent you and your loved one in your nursing home negligence claim.
