How do I know if I have a case against a nursing home?
Whether they are family owned or run by corporations, nursing homes are required by federal law to uphold standards of care. Unfortunately, some nursing homes, including those located in communities throughout Camden, Atlantic and Burlington counties, fail to meet the standards of care. When this happens, residents of these facilities can suffer serious and potentially fatal injuries. Facilities that operate with employees who are not trained or fail to hire enough staff to ensure residents are cared for properly may be named as defendants in nursing home neglect and abuse lawsuits. To find out if you have a case, we urge you to call our office today to discuss your specific circumstances. Many of our clients called us after suspecting neglect or abuse. They might have seen signs of improper care of a loved one, including:
- Bed sores
- Pressure sores
- Unusual weight loss
- Personality changes
- Unexplained injuries such as bruises or cuts
Often, nursing home neglect can be traced back to a systematic problem within the nursing home management. In some cases, the abuse or neglect is linked to an individual staff member, a visitor or even another resident. Abuse can come in a variety of ways. A resident might suffer physical abuse or sexual abuse. Price and Price also examines cases involving non-physical abuse such as financial exploitation of the elderly. A nursing home may be responsible for misuse of the senior's bank accounts or credit cards. Cases sometimes involved forged signatures or the stealing of an elder's identity.
Problems that could lead to a nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuit
- Hiring of unqualified staff
- Failing to staff the nursing home with enough workers
- Improper training of staff
- Medication errors
- Allowing residents to live in an unclean environment
An experienced attorney can investigate on your behalf to build a strong case. We understand how critical it is to hold negligent nursing homes accountable. Families in South Jersey who trust these facilities to care for their loved ones should expect nothing less. Every mother, father, grandmother, grandfather or other friend or relative in a nursing home deserves a safe, comfortable and clean environment. They are entitled to quality care and medical support. If you suspect any type of abuse or neglect, please contact Price and Price immediately for a consultation.
