Riverside Assisted Living and
Nursing Home Injuries Attorney
It is hard when you can no longer take care of an elderly family member and they must be placed into an assisted living or nursing home facility. More than one million Americans currently live in assisted living and nursing homes and the number is increasing daily. You hope you will not have to contact a Riverside assisted living or nursing home injuries attorney to defend your elderly family member. Yet, if an injury occurs, an attorney experienced in such matters is essential assistance for your loved one.
When your elderly family member is entrusted to the care of an assisted living nursing home facility, you are entitled to expect that your loved one will receive proper care and will be treated with dignity. Assisted living or nursing home neglect, commonly called elder abuse, is the failure of a facility to properly attend to the needs of its residents, a problem encountered in all types of elder care facilities.
When your loved one suffers injuries as a result of elder abuse, you need to contact me, an experienced Riverside elder abuse lawyer. I will protect his or her rights, ensure that he or she is properly treated and pursue full and fair compensation for any injuries sustained.
When an elderly person becomes a resident of a nursing home, it is because they can no longer care for themselves. They depend on a staff of caring professionals to help them on a daily basis. When the negligence of one of the staff results in an injury or death, you need to hold the nursing home staff accountable for their actions or neglect.
Common signs of elder abuse include:
- Pressure sores (bedsores) & unnatural bruising
- Malnutrition & dehydration
- Inadequate supervision
- Bad hygiene
- Rapid weight loss
- Failure to provide medications
Incidents in assisted living and nursing homes are challenging to deal with and sometimes difficult to determine what actually happened. You need to familiarize yourself with the signs of elder abuse and neglect, and learn how to deal with problems that may arise.
