Nursing Home Abuse/Negligence Lawsuits Lawyer

The elderly and disabled rely on the full time medical and personal care available at nursing homes, trusting these facilities to give them the care they need. While many good people work at nursing homes, they are run for profit and often the focus is on cutting costs instead of improving care for residents. When nursing home residents are neglected, abused or exposed to unsafe conditions that cause injury or death, the company responsible for their care may be liable for their injuries.

One of the responsibilities of nursing home companies is to provide a safe environment and protect patients from injury. This includes maintaining the facilities for safety, including adequate lighting, non-slip flooring, medical equipment, safety rails and many other features. When this basic duty is neglected, residents may be injured in fall and other accidents. Lack of building and equipment maintenance is one of the areas of negligence that can lead to injuries and lawsuits against the nursing home owners.

Nursing Home Employee Abuse

While falls and other accidents due to poor maintenance or training do occur at nursing homes, many injuries are not caused by accidents. The employees of nursing homes can be the source of neglect and abuse, a distasteful, yet true, fact. Nursing home residents are often at the mercy of their caregivers, sustaining injuries from emotional, physical and sexual abuse. The administrations of nursing homes have a duty to protect their patients and hire quality staff that will care for the patients, not harm them. When nursing home abuse or neglect occurs that causes mental, emotional or physical injuries, the owners of these facilities may be held accountable.

If you have a loved one in a nursing home that has been injured and you suspect abuse or neglect, contact Georgia Department of Human Services, Division of Aging Services to report the abuse. You can also look at your legal options by contacting our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP. If your loved one has been injured, or you believe negligence was involved in their death, we can explore your options for pursuing a nursing home negligence lawsuit.
