Jackson Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse Attorney
If your loved one has been harmed by nursing home neglect or abuse, it’s an exceptionally difficult situation that can leave you feeling helpless. After all, your aging relative is in a nursing home because he or she needs additional care, and when that care isn’t forthcoming – or there is actually abuse involved – it is a terrible disservice (at best). An experienced nursing home neglect/abuse lawyer can help you hold the nursing home accountable and help you obtain the compensation your loved one needs to get back on the path toward recovery.
Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing homes provide their residents with the individualized care they need to live more active, rewarding lives. When a facility fails to follow through with these individualized care plans, it amounts to neglect – in the sense that the facility neglects to provide adequate care (typically as a result of being rushed and/or understaffed). While nursing home neglect isn’t usually intentional, it can be quite harmful – because residents end up not receiving the full scope of care they require.
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse, on the other hand, involves actions that are purposefully abusive, which makes it especially damaging and especially difficult to come to terms with. Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including:
- Physical abuse
- Psychological abuse
- Financial abuse
- Sexual abuse
Neither nursing home abuse nor nursing home neglect should ever be ignored.
