Johnson City Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
Do you have suspicions that a senior loved one is being abused or neglected by the staff at his or her nursing home? Doubts about the quality of care your senior loved one is receiving can be difficult to validate. You may have a feeling, but are unsure about what is actually evidence of abuse.
Is It Abuse Or An Accident?
An injury may have happened, but was it an accident, abuse or failure to provide proper care? Some instances can be more clear-cut. Bedsores, for example, are caused by failing to turn a bedridden person often enough. A bedsore should not happen if nursing home staff members are doing their jobs properly.
A broken bone could also be a sign of staffers not giving your senior loved one the care he or she deserves. While accidents can happen, if the fracture happened while staff members were moving him or her from a bed to a wheelchair, it could mean that they failed to have adequate staff there to assist.
