Nursing Home Abuse

Aurora and Denver Nursing Home Neglect Attorney

[video_seo id=9 autoplay=0 width=480 height=270] When you discover that your loved one is being abused in a nursing home—-the news can be devastating. In addition to helping your loved one, you may be left with feelings of guilt, sadness and even extreme anger. During this highly emotional time, it is important to contact a nursing home abuse attorney immediately to review all of your legal options and protect your loved one from further abuse. Nursing home abuse is all too common and statistics show that almost 2 million elderly over the age of 65 are abused or mistreated by caregivers. Unfortunately, the majority of cases are never reported, so the number of abused elderly may even be higher. Due to their dependence, the elderly are easy targets for various forms of abuse including mental or emotional, physical, medical and financial abuse. When you choose to place your loved one in a nursing home, you trust that the nursing home has performed the necessary background checks on all of their employees. You also trust the nursing home to act appropriately,  provide a high level of care and treat your loved one with respect and dignity. When they fail to do so, you may have reason to file a claim.

Nursing Home Abuse Examples:

  • Misuse or improper use of restraints
  • Bedsores
  • Malnutrition
  • Improper Pain Management
  • Unsanitary Conditions
  • Improperly treated Medical Conditions
  • Humiliation
  • Verbal abuse, screaming or yelling inappropriately
  • Inappropriate bill charges or inappropriate investments
  • Stealing money
  • Stealing property
  • Physical assault
  • Sexual assault
If your loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse or if you suspect nursing home abuse, it is important to seek legal representation immediately. A nursing home abuse attorney will need to report your suspicions to the Colorado Nursing Home Administration Board and investigate your suspicions to determine if you have reason to file a claim. In addition, a Colorado nursing home abuse attorney will be able to guide you through the legal process so you can choose the pathway that is best for you and your loved one.
