Has Your Loved One Suffered Abuse While in a Georgia Nursing Home?

When your loved one lives in a nursing home, keeping an ongoing eye on their care is critical. Most nursing homes take diligent care of their residents with care and empathy. However, the truth is, nursing homes usually for-profit businesses. Like any business, they risk putting profits before their residents. However, when a patient suffers due to elderly negligence or intentional harm, there may be compensation for the resident or family.

How is Nursing Home Abuse Defined?

Nursing home abuse can happen in many ways. Physical abuse of residents by employees is a real fear and happens too often. Other types of nursing home abuse include negligence by medical staff and housekeeping and maintenance conditions, financial abuse and more.

If you notice your loved one isn’t being bathed regularly or they complain of hunger often, it’s necessary to investigate. Verbal abuse is also against the law. Uncompleted repairs, lighting issues, staff shortages and more are not automatically abusive, but they must be addressed and fixed immediately.

Do I Need to Document Abuse Myself?

Documentation of the abuse is going to be needed. Begin by keeping a journal, with dates, detailing what you are seeing or what your loved one is reporting. Getting additional evidence can be tricky, but contacting a lawyer experienced in fighting nursing home neglect is your first step. An experienced team of attorneys can help you see what options may be available and how you can proceed.

How Do I Report Nursing Home Abuse?

If you suspect nursing home abuse in Georgia, you can report it to any of these agencies listed. You can also contact Conley Griggs Partin LLP to discuss your legal options. We can partner with you, help you through the process, and fight for you in court.

What Consequences Can a Nursing Home Face if Convicted of Abuse?

Depending on the nature of the case, consequences can include financial reparations, loss of license and criminal charges.

Having your loved one experience neglect or abuse at any age is heartbreaking. Knowing it happened at the place you pay to care for them is unbearable. But, with the right lawyers, you can stop the abuse/neglect and hold the facility and its administrators responsible. Contact Conley Griggs and Partin LLP today.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
