Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers
Nursing Home Abuse
Most nursing home staff members are dedicated professionals who care about their residents. Unfortunately, every field has people working in it who should not be there. When careless or incompetent people enter the field of elder care, the results are heartbreaking.
The Effects of Negligence and Elder Abuse
The elderly are more vulnerable to certain injuries and illnesses than young adults. They may also suffer from cognitive difficulties that make them targets for scams. Nursing home workers have an important duty to protect them from all of these unfortunate possibilities.
When a nursing home is negligent in meeting this duty, innocent patients can suffer from:
- Pressure Ulcers
- Unsanitary Environment
- Overmedication or Undermedication
- Theft and Fraud
- Failure to Train Employees
Results from these abuses may require medical and/or psychological treatment, which can be very costly. If you are concerned about meeting the costs of treatment for a formerly neglected loved one, a Washington State nursing home abuse attorney can explain your options for receiving compensation. You may also be eligible for compensation for pain and suffering, as well as lost wages and other financial damages.
