Nursing Home and Long Term Care

Every day, families make the difficult and important decision to place a loved one in a nursing home. Naturally, the families rely on the nursing home staff to provide the kind of care they expect the loved one will receive and which the facility usually promises it will provide to the loved one. Unfortunately, the nursing home often breaks these promises and fails to provide the proper care to the resident. The loved one is then injured as a result. These injuries can have devastating effects since the loved one already has health issues. These health issues often include confusion and other mental status problems. These problems, in turn, make it difficult for the nursing home resident to tell the family about the inadequate care. The facility often hides the poor care and resulting injuries. So, the family often doesn’t find out about the poor care and resulting injuries until it’s too late.

WHAT IS NURSING HOME NEGLECT AND ABUSE:

Some types of nursing home neglect and abuse include:

  • Pressure Ulcers (Bed Sores, Decubiti, Decubitus Ulcers)
  • Malnutrition/ Starvation (Are aides taking the time to help your loved one eat if they need assistance or are they simply dropping off the food and leaving? Are the aides picking up the trays before your loved one has had the chance to eat?)
  • Dehydration (Does your loved one constantly want water?)
  • Sexual Assault (Signs include: Itching, Redness, Soreness, Discharge)
  • Physical Assault (Does your loved one have bruises, black eyes and/or welts?)
  • Wandering outside facility from lack of oversight (Also known as Elopement)
  • Death

No matter what form it takes, nursing home abuse is wrong and the Law Offices of David H. Brinton, LLC can help.

Physician and Hospital Negligence/Malpractice

Doctors, nurses, hospitals, health clinics and testing laboratories sometimes fail to provide medical care or make mistakes that injure or even kill a patient. If a member of the medical community is either negligent or careless, whether by accident or on purpose, they may be held liable for the damage they cause. If you or a loved one is facing injury, life threatening disease, or even death, you may have a medical malpractice claim.
