Nursing Home Abuse or Elder Abuse?
Let Our Nashville Injury Lawyer Help Your Loved One
Nashville injury attorney, Stanley A. Davis has a very high regard for the dignity of people, no matter what point in life they find themselves. If someone has been blessed enough to have lived a long life and to have gained experience and wisdom that can benefit future generations, that person deserves the respect and care of those who will gain from that wisdom. At times, though, when an older person is at a point in life where nursing home care becomes the best option, we will not accept that the nursing home’s care will be inadequate, neglectful or abusive.
Common Signs of Nursing Home Negligence or Abuse
Your loved one may or may not be able to tell you if the abuse is happening. A nursing home abuse attorney can better explain to you what to look for if you suspect abuse or negligence; however, here are a few common things that you can look for, such as:
- Repeated falls
- Unreasonable restraints
- Improper use or distribution of medications
Types of abuse can include
- Sexual assault
- Neglect, including failure to provide food and drink
