Nursing home abuse is a tragic reality for many elderly individuals living in nursing home facilities across the country. For families who must make the difficult decision to place a relative in a nursing home, the realization that the care and protection they assumed would be given to their loved one was not provided can be devastating. Whether the abuse is the result of neglect or actively perpetrated by staff or management, the consequences that it can have for the elderly are often extremely serious.
Nursing homes are expected to provide the respect and treatment that our most vulnerable citizens deserve, so when the trust that Connecticut residents place in these care facilities is fundamentally violated, our team at the Law Offices of Paul Levin believes that those who own and manage these facilities should be held liable for the ensuing repercussions. Although taking such action does not erase the abuse that a resident suffered, it can go a long way towards alleviating the many burdens placed upon a victim and their family.
Forms of Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse can take on a number of different forms, many of which can be difficult to detect. The following are just some of the many ways that abuse may occur in a nursing home setting:
- Bed Sores
- Physical Abuse
- Psychological Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Theft and Fraud
These and other forms of nursing home abuse are inexcusable, and those responsible for allowing them such transgression to occur need to be held accountable for their actions.
