A California Nursing Home Abuse Attorney Can Help Protect Your Loved Ones From Physical Abuse
When you place the care of your elderly family member in the hands of another person or institution, such as a nursing home or residential care facility for the elderly, you trust that the staff will treat your loved one like their own—with professional, full-time care and compassion. Choosing a nursing home for loved ones is never easy, but such facilities should be selected based on which one will be the best fit and provide the highest quality of care for your loved one.
Nursing homes are meant to be literal homes for older residents who can no longer live on their own, or whose needs have increased beyond their family’s ability to provide. For this reason, physical abuse in nursing homes—bed sores, broken bones, caregiver neglect, sexual assault, or other physical trauma—should never be tolerated. Family members should be on guard against signs of abuse, and should act immediately at the first signs or suspicions of a problem. The Welfare and Institutions Code 15600, et seq. encourages individuals to report known or suspected cases of abuse. If your loved one has been subject to abuse in his or her nursing home, you should seek legal counsel from an experienced California nursing home abuse attorney to determine the best course of action.
