Nursing Home Abuse
The elderly and injured are our most vulnerable. As a society, we owe a duty to the vulnerable to ensure that they are safe and protected. Some of the most tragic stories we hear in our practice are those where Nursing Home Abuse is involved. We have seen people’s loved ones: grandmothers, grandfathers, parents, siblings and even children; ravaged by thirst, and hunger because of Nursing Home Abuse.
We have seen patients with massive bedsores from basic failure to follow the rules provided for in the New Jersey Nursing Home Statute. We have seen the elderly dropped. We have seen the elderly left to waste in bed in spite of calling for help. Some Nursing Home workers have abused patients physically, emotionally, and, yes, even sexually. Of course, some workers have also stolen from their patients as well. We have made it a focus of our office to help protect those who are most vulnerable.
If you or a loved one has faced any problem in a Nursing Home or Long Term Care Facility, call us today. New Jersey provides for substantial protections under the New Jersey Nursing Home Resident’s Bill of Rights. Additionally, under many circumstances, we can shift the burden of attorney’s fees to the Nursing Home. So please, call us today. Let us help you and your loved ones protect your rights.
