Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

Nursing Home Neglect & AbuseAs our population ages, ever-increasing numbers of seniors find that they are unable to care for themselves. Because friends and family are not always able to care for the needs of seniors, nursing homes and assisted living centers have experienced a major surge in growth and in the number of seniors they care for.

Unfortunately, in some such facilities, elders are falling victim to neglect and abuse, both physically and emotionally. Oftentimes, nursing homes attempt to save money and maximize profit by using inadequately trained or unqualified help.

Some examples of the results of nursing home neglect include:

  • injury due to a fall
  • bedsores, pressure sores, and decubitus ulcers
  • malnutrition/dehydration
  • and insufficient medical care

Nursing home neglect may also result in inadequate supervision, which is especially dangerous for any patients suffering from dementia who may wander away from the home.

If your loved one has been the victim of abuse or neglect in a nursing home or an assisted living facility anywhere in New York State, contact the Law Office of Jeena R. Belil, P.C. for a free consultation.
