Conyers Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorney
Nursing homes provide the most vulnerable among us with the care and comfort they need to maintain the highest quality of life possible. You carefully chose a facility that you trusted to care for your aging loved one, and if he or she instead encountered nursing home neglect or abuse, you may feel as if you’re in a hopeless situation. Working closely with an experienced nursing home neglect and abuse lawyer in Conyers is the surest path forward.
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse refers to harm that befalls a nursing home resident as a result of the nursing home and/or its staff member’s intentional wrongdoing. This intentional component makes nursing home abuse especially egregious and harmful.
Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing home neglect refers to harm that befalls a nursing home resident as a result of the absence of adequate care and/or attention. While the staff didn’t intend to harm your loved one, they also didn’t bother to provide him or her with the level of care that he or she needs (and that is the reason for him or her residing in the nursing home in the first place). There are many signs of potential nursing home negligence, including:
- Your loved one loses weight unexpectedly or has an unexplained change in demeanor
- Your loved one is less well-kempt than usual
- Your loved one’s living quarters are unsanitary or incorporate tripping hazards
The nursing home is not only responsible for providing your loved one with a clean, safe, comfortable living space and adequate nutrition and hydration but is also responsible for providing ample opportunities for social interaction and physical exercise, adequate help with personal hygiene (including assistance with using the bathroom), and more.
