You should be able to trust the health care facilities your loved ones are placed at. It is legally their duty to provide care for elderly citizens acting as their caregiver. Unfortunately, that is not always true, as there are cases on the rise reporting of neglect and abuse to those residents.
Our Beaufort attorneys at Berry & Carr have experience in protecting residents and their families to get the care and service they deserve. Below are some of the most common types of neglect and abuse from nursing facilities:
|Falls||Refusal of Medical Treatment|
|Improper Use of Physical Restraints||Infections|
|Improper Use of Medications||Assaults|
Uncovering Abuse of the Elderly
Below are ways to tell if an elderly resident have been subject to nursing home neglect or nursing home abuse:
|Frequent injuries||Frequent complaints of pain without obvious injury|
|Passive, withdrawn or emotionless behavior||Lack of reaction to pain|
|Lack of personal cleanliness|
We have access to the resources to fully investigate and uncover suspicious behavior from nursing home staff and management to get to the bottom of the situation. We can obtain the necessary documentation, including medical records with standard care that should be in place. We can help you get full financial compensation for your loved one.
