Nursing Home Abuse
As our population ages, more families are faced with the difficult decision of placing their loved ones in a nursing home. When your family member enters a facility, you are putting your trust that they will be safe and well cared for, free from neglect and abuse.
Florida law outlines specific Nursing Home Residents’ Rights. However, when loved ones suffer from neglect or abuse at a nursing home, we are here to help and hold the responsible parties accountable.
Our experienced team investigates cases of physical abuse; sexual abuse; emotional abuse; neglect, including dehydration and malnutrition, unsafe or filthy living conditions, poor hygiene, drug overdoses, bedsores; and, other untreated medical problems.
Our seniors deserve to be treated with dignity. If you suspect your loved one is being mistreated, it is important to have a trained advocate investigate quickly.
At Terrell Hogan, we are proud of the work we do on behalf of people who have been the victims of neglect or even abuse in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. By 2030, approximately 20% of the US population will be elderly. Many of these nursing homes already face a shortage of qualified care givers. In many of our cases, we frequently find facilities that are understaffed, do not maintain enough certified nursing assistants to provide for residents’ basic care and needs and do not have the required number of nurses on duty.
