Nursing Home Negligence

nursing-home-neglect

Making the decision to move a loved one into a nursing home can be a difficult choice. Families go through a lot of trouble and stress to pick the right home. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to know which facility will actually live up to all its promises. Nursing home neglect is far too common and residents of nursing homes are mistreated and abused daily through neglect, abuse and financial exploitation.

Nursing home staff have been known to do inhumane things such as ignoring the patient’s needs, allowing patients to lay in their own urine and feces, giving the wrong medication, physical abuse, emotional abuse, stealing the patient’s identity, and stealing their money.

The attorneys at RG Injury Law work hard for you and your family to build your case and to reclaim your loved one’s dignity.
