It is critical that these homes offer adequate staffing so that patients get the attention they deserve.

  • Sexual and physical abuse

Nursing home abuse can lead to a wide range of common injuries in the elderly, such as broken hips, broken and fractured bones, worsening conditions, pressure ulcers, blood sores and other conditions. Elderly individuals deserve to be treated with respect and dignity; these injuries are unacceptable.

Types of facilities that must be regulated include nursing homes, long-term care facilities, assisted living homes and other hospitals and clinics that provide elderly care. Punitive damages can also be sought in these types of cases to prevent future abuse.
