Nursing Home Neglect
Sad but true, an estimated 2.1 million seniors in the United States who reside in a nursing home, fall victim to some sort of nursing home neglect. And those numbers are just the cases that are reported to authorities. The number of victims in nursing homes may be as much as five times that number. The attorneys at the Eshelman Legal Group in N.E. Ohio who specialize in nursing home neglect are here to help you. If you have been a victim of nursing home neglect, please call: 1.800.365.0001.
As mentioned before, you could fall victim to “some sort of nursing home neglect”. So what types of neglect or abuse are there?
- Physical Abuse
- Emotional Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Financial Exploitation
Each in its own way is horrific and not something that you would want to happen to anyone, let alone your own family member whom you have entrusted in the care of another. So what can you do to avoid this dilemma? The lawyers at the Eshelman Legal Group who specialize in nursing home neglect (and abuse) have a few simple suggestions for you to keep in mind while looking at and visiting different facilities to care for your elderly loved one.
- How is the appearance of the staff and residents?
- Is the staff friendly?
- Are there daily activities for the patients?
- How clean is the dining area and what is the menu like?
- What is the overall operation of the facility like?
- If there is a healthcare issue, are doctors always on site, is a doctor called in, or is the patient rushed to a hospital?
- What is the patient to staff ratio?
- How experienced and well trained are the staff members?
- Has this facility had or is currently in a malpractice dispute?
Of course, there are also other factors to consider when choosing a nursing home for your loved one. Location (is it convenient for you to visit) and visiting policies (hours) are two important ones. What it comes down to is this...do your homework ahead of time and hopefully you will not have a bad experience.
That said, if your loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, please contact the Eshelman Legal Group if the abuse occurred in Ohio. Our attorneys will help you move forward with this difficult claim and hold the guilty party responsible for the suffering. And hopefully, your claim will help stop the abuse of other patients in the same facility.
