Nursing Home Neglect
It is difficult to hear that a loved one is not being properly cared for or has been abused by the staff or owners of nursing home facilities. Most nursing home patients are vulnerable to abuse or negligence by untrained or unqualified staff. Moreover, many times the victims of abuse are not in a position to report the abuse. Signs of abuse include broken bones or bruises; over medication; medication errors; bed sores; falls; dehydration; signs of physical or emotional abuse. Please contact Duggan & Hughes if you suspect that your loved ones are being abused in a nursing home.
