Nursing Home Abuse Attorney in Atlanta and Savannah, GA
Nursing Home Negligence
Unfortunately, nursing home negligence and elder abuse occur more frequently than one would think.
It is a disturbing and tragic fact that should not be ignored in any capacity.
Senior citizens are society’s most vulnerable group of people. They are at their most isolated when their living situations become dangerous, and it becomes clear that they cannot live on their own or defend themselves.
Should complications arise, however, we may need to turn the care of our loved ones over to assisted living, nursing homes, or long-term care facilities.
We expect these nursing home facilities to provide quality, dedicated, thoughtful, and compassionate care to our loved ones.
That is the sole reason we have elected to place them in their care.
That is why it is so particularly heinous when that trust is violated. It doesn’t only affect oneself, but the quality of life of one they love.
The Brown firm has taken good care of me throughout both of my accidents in the past 5 years. I could name several people I would like to thank but the truth is every member across the board of The Brown Firm has outstanding customer service and will help you find out all the information you need to know about your case. And if they do not have the answers they point you in the direction of someone who does. I pray I never have another accident, but if I do I know I can count on The Brown Firm.
Nursing Home Residents Need an Advocate
Georgia nursing homes and assisted living facilities can be busy places, and staff members face many challenges in caring for elderly residents. Most of them do their best to provide quality care, but sometimes mistakes are made or caregivers act out of their own frustrations.
As unfortunate as it sounds, nursing home abuse does occur and can take many different forms, such as:
- Emotional abuse
- Physical abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
- Medical malpractice
Of course, there is never a good reason for nursing home staff to mistreat a resident. This is when you need to be an advocate for your loved one. While the abusive actions might be hidden by caregivers, family members can watch for signs of nursing home neglect or mistreatment, including:
- Broken bones
- Mood changes
- Medication errors
- Wrongful death
If you know someone suffering from abuse, it is imperative that you act as quickly as possible. The sooner help arrives, the sooner the abusive behavior can end.
