As we age, we require more medical attention – the natural process causes our health to decline and our bodies to weaken. As individuals transition into nursing homes and assisted living facilities, families do their best to ensure that the care their loved one will be receiving is top notch and will enable their loved one to live safely and comfortable. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is prevalent all across Ohio. When a loved one is placed in a nursing home, it is often because that individual has lost the ability to care for themselves. We expect that nursing home staff and owners will take extra care to provide a safe environment that will promote the health and well-being of elderly residents. Sometimes the nursing home caregivers or staff fail to treat their patients with dignity and respect.
When the nursing home staff or managers do not uphold the expected standard of decency and their negligence or wrongful actions lead to injury or illness for your loved one, the nursing home has abused your loved one. If you have been abused or if you suspect a loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible.
