We Will Determine Exactly the Kind of Abuse Your Loved One Suffered
Seniors seek the help of nursing homes when they can no longer care for themselves. The expectation is that the facility will maintain a safe and comfortable environment for them. Unfortunately, your loved one might experience various forms of abuse.
The law prohibits nursing homes from using any form of physical force against a senior citizen. Some forms of physical abuse in nursing homes include actions such as:
- Corporal punishment
- Kicking, hitting, and shoving
- Unreasonable restraints
- Forced eating
- Incorrect use of medications
Your loved one might not speak out about the abuse, so check for things like lacerations, fractures, panic attacks, wounds, refusal to see visitors, and broken bones. If you notice any of these, you may consider retaining a Lake Mary nursing home abuse lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine.
If the nursing home fails to offer enough care and comfort for your loved one, you may be able to sue the facility for neglect. Signs of abandonment might include:
- Stained clothing
- Unhygienic conditions
- Poor air conditioning in warm climates
- Failure to treat a medical condition promptly
- Unavailable prescribed drugs
Someone can steal your loved one’s money at the nursing center. Your loved one might also lose money or details of their financial accounts through deception, fraud, or coercion.
Indications that your loved one is undergoing financial exploitation include fabricated services, lost ATM cards, and fake signatures on financial documents. Other signs to look out for unexplained charges on their bank account or credit card and unexpected changes to a will.
If you need help in investigating such matters, call 1-800-747-3733 for a free case evaluation from a team member from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine.
Staff in a nursing home may use words that insult, demean, threaten, isolate, and intimidate your loved one. Emotional abuse could look like treating a resident as a nuisance. It may arise when the caregiver denies meals or isolates your loved one from their friends.
Under § 400.022 of the Florida Statutes, residents have unalienable rights. We can fight to protect those rights.
