What is Nursing Home Negligence or Abuse?
Once a family has made the difficult decision to place a loved one in a nursing home, they expect that the loved one will be treated properly and not be neglected or abused. Unfortunately, in New York, many nursing homes fail to provide the proper standard of care to our loved ones. Nursing home negligence or neglect is when the care facility fails to do something, where they fail to provide your loved one with the proper care and treatment.
Nursing home abuse involves some intentional wrongdoing, whether it be sexual, physical, or emotional. It’s some wrong that’s being perpetrated against your loved one. If you’re concerned that your loved one may be a victim of nursing home negligence or abuse, or if a loved one has recently passed away and you suspect that they did not receive proper care, it’s important to speak to an attorney to discuss your options.
