Nursing Homes Negligence and Misstreatment
Im hearing a lot of things about elderly people in nursing homes who are being neglected or mistreated is there a case there?
There is absolutely a case if an elderly person is neglected or mistreated at a nursing home situation.
One of the things we most commonly see are bedsores. This type of injuries are not supposed to occur, people are supposed to be turned or rotated if they are not able to do that for themselves. They are also supposed to have their undergarments changed and not lie on waste or feces to the point that an open wound develops. These are very difficult, painful and nasty wounds and once the develop they are hard to get rid of.
If that has happened to someone you know we will be happy to consult and try to assist them in that situation.
