PROTECTING VICTIMS OF NURSING HOME PHYSICAL ABUSE
With the increased need for nursing home care and the proliferation of nursing home facilities, many providers are understaffed, hire workers without proper background checks or fail to properly train employees. As a result, many nursing homes hire employees who pose a health or safety risk to residents.
We protect the rights of people who have suffered any type ofphysical abuse in a nursing home, handling cases involving
- striking, hitting, punching or otherwise physically touching, also known as battery.using force or retraint mechanisms that are either unnecessary or excessive.
- denying residents necessary medical care or medication.
