What Does Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Look Like?

When you chose a nursing home for your elderly relative, high quality care was likely on top of your list of requirements. With that said, the most thorough due process in the world may fail to identify red flags. Nursing home neglect and abuse typically happens behind closed doors – out of sight of relatives or the public.

There are some signs you can look for if you believe that a vulnerable relative is suffering because of nursing home neglect. However, abuse or dereliction of duty does not always look like in the movies. If a member of the staff is deliberately harming an elderly relative, he or she may attempt to hide the signs.

Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

When discussing nursing home abuse, deliberate intent to harm may come to mind. When an employee hurts, coerces or steals from a resident, it is considered abusive behavior. Your loved one is in potential danger, so it is important to act on your suspicions.

Neglect may not involve deliberate actions but rather, failure to provide adequate care or a safe environment. Not administering medications, non-adherence to personal hygiene provisions and failing to remove hazards are just some examples of nursing home neglect.

It is possible to report abuse online to the Department of Human Services Division of Aging Services. You can also call the Georgia Department of Community Health Healthcare Facility Regulation department at (404) 657-5700. The most crucial step in the first instance is preventing the continuation of neglect or abuse.

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.
