Taking action against nursing home neglect and abuse

As loved ones age, we have to make difficult decisions. If it is clear that he or she cannot care for him or herself anymore, it might be time to discuss placement in a nursing home. These facilities are equipped with professionals that can provide the necessary care for them. While there are many reputable nursing homes throughout Kentucky and the entire nation, there are still instances where abuse and neglect occur.

Nursing home abuse and neglect are difficult to talk about or confront because we do not want to believe they are occurring. Unfortunately, our loved ones are not always cared for in ways that they should, resulting in harms caused to them. At the Law Offices of Herren & Adams, LLP, we understand that this is a sensitive matter that deserves an aggressive legal team. Thus, we are dedicated to helping families in the Lexington area understand their situation and how best to exert their rights.

With regards to nursing home neglect, this could occur in a variety of situations. A resident may not be properly fed nutritional meals or fed enough, their hygiene may be poor due to not receiving routine baths, they could suffer bedsores because they are not mobile enough and they could suffer a fall because the facility failed to protect against such incidents.

If you see signs of nursing home neglect, it is important to speak up and take action. Our law firm can help you by conducting a thorough investigation, uncovering evidence, collecting medical records, speaking with witnesses and consulting with experts. This information could be used to hold a nursing home accountable, aiding our clients with the collection of compensation for their losses.
