Real Help That Your Loved Ones Can Depend On
We know that placing a loved one in an assisted care facility can be tough on the whole family. You choose to do so expecting that your loved one will receive quality care in a nursing home. Unfortunately, mistakes and neglect can happen, and your loved one may be injured as a result. At Douglas, Joseph & Olson, we believe that you and your family deserve the quality care you expect.
The number of people needing assisted care is on the rise. Facilities can be overwhelmed and vulnerable to potential problems. Our experienced attorneys have seen a variety of claims, including neglect, negligence, failure to properly administer medications, failure to restrain wandering residents and failure to properly secure residents in their bed. If your loved one is the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, we will hold the facility accountable and get your family the compensation that is deserved.
Committed To Fighting For Care Standards
You expect nursing home staff to be properly trained and to treat your loved ones with the utmost care. Facilities should provide residents with the proper living conditions, treatments and services needed. Nursing home negligence comes in many forms.
The following symptoms could be signs of abuse or neglect:
- Bedsores and ulcers
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Unexplained fractures
- Medication errors
- Unexplained emergency room visits
- Excessive isolation
- Personal hygiene issues
