York Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Filing a Nursing Home Abuse & Elder Abuse Claim

Entrusting a loved one to the care of a nursing home or residential facility can be a difficult decision. Because of delicate health or other frailties, this may seem the very best solution. To discover that the care being provided is more harmful than helpful may come as a shock to you. Unfortunately, despite numerous state and federal regulations in place to protect residents of nursing homes, a high percentage of these facilities deliver substandard care and in some cases overt abuse. If you have any suspicion that your friend or family member is being improperly cared for because of carelessness or out of malice, discuss your concerns with a compassionate York personal injury attorney.

The Responsibilities of a Nursing Home

Nursing homes have a moral and legal responsibility to provide a safe and clean environment, medical care as needed, good nutrition and see to a resident's personal hygiene needs. Indications of neglect or abuse can include:

  • Unexplained, accidents, falls and injuries
  • Frequent bruising
  • A sudden change in the resident's attitude: fearful, withdrawn, or uncommunicative.
  • Soiled bed linens or poor personal hygiene
  • Untreated injuries
  • The disappearance of personal possessions or cash
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Unexplained death
