Nursing Home Abuse

Many nursing home residents enjoy an excellent level of physical and emotional care, but sadly, many others are abused and neglected.  This abuse result from a lack of essential medical attention, verbal insults or even physical attacks. No matter the nature of the abuse, it is important for those responsible to be held accountable.

Crawford has helped a number of nursing home abuse victims secure the compensation they deserve.

Types Of Nursing Home Abuse

Not all mistreatment in nursing homes and assisted living facilities involves an employee actively trying to hurt a resident. Often, the worst abuse occurs when nursing home employees fail to fully carry out their duties as a result of laziness or incompetence. Bedsores (also known as pressure sores) are especially common; these occur when nursing home residents are forced to sit or lie down in the same position for long periods of time without being moved. These sores can range from mildly uncomfortable to extraordinarily painful. In many cases, sufferers are forced to undergo extensive medical interventions so as to avoid infection.

The National Quality Forum (NQF), a health care safety advocacy agency, has identified 28 errors, dubbed “never events.”  These include but are not limited to bedsores, embolisms, operating on the wrong part of the body, and amputating the wrong limb . . .

If you or a family member have been the victim of a preventable “never event” injury, or infections acquired during a nursing home, assisted living facility or hospital stay, then please call us for a free consultation.
