There are more than 16,000 nursing homes in the United States, housing approximately 2 million residents. When we make the difficult decision to put a loved one in a nursing home we expect the facility to provide a safe environment and skilled care. However, many fail to meet this expectation. Signs of nursing home negligence, nursing home neglect and nursing home abuse include: bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration, poor personal hygiene, bruises, cuts, burns, sprains, fractures, frozen joints, infections, medication errors, sudden behavioral changes, fear, depression, theft, and unexplained changes in financial account balances or documents. If you observe any of these signs, act quickly to protect your loved one by contacting the experienced attorneys of Scartelli Olszewski, P.C.
Our team of attorneys has successfully counseled and represented injured victims in state and federal courts, as well as alternative dispute resolution proceedings such as arbitration and mediation. We strive to hold wrongdoers accountable for injuries sustained by our loved ones who are helpless to protect themselves.
If you or a loved one has suffered from nursing home abuse or neglect, we encourage you to contact us today.
