Personal Injury Lawyer to Fight Elder Abuse
The sad truth about nursing homes is that too many of them allow substandard care for their elderly residents. With an aging population, more and more elders face the risk of vulnerability to substandard and neglectful care. From indifferent care to staff intentionally victimizing the elderly in their care, nursing home residents can fall victim to a number of unacceptable nursing home neglect situations. Often the voices of residents go unheard as abuse continues to take place. Carey Law Firm and our team of personal injury lawyers is a voice to advocate for and defend this vulnerable population.
It is important that you take action and ensure that your loved one is not stuck in an abusive situation. Abuse can take many forms, including pressure sores, bruises, broken bones, falls or even death. A knowledgeable lawyer experienced in the unique circumstances of nursing home law and care is uniquely qualified to help defend your loved one from the victimization of nursing home staff and advocate for their redress and improved future care. The personal injury lawyer at Carey Law Firm is prepared to assist your family in cases of neglect or other injuries resulting from abuse or neglect.
Federal Nursing Home Regulations
While nursing home regulations may be a distinct niche in federal law, Carey Law Firm has the necessary experience to provide accurate legal counsel for you and your family in regard to elder abuse and nursing home law. Federal nursing home laws mandate the following:
- Nursing homes must be properly and fully staffed.
- Nursing home staff must conduct an initial assessment of each resident’s functional capacity.
- Nursing home staff must actively prevent the deterioration of a resident’s ability to (among others) dress, bathe, groom, eat, and to communicate.
- Nursing home staff must ensure residents do not develop pressure sores. If a resident has pressure sores, the nursing home staff must provide treatment and services to promote healing, prevent infection, and stop new sores from developing.
The experienced attorneys at Carey Law Firm can help you better understand federal nursing home laws and regulations, and can help you determine your chances of a successful case.
