Macon Ga Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse Attorney
It is not easy to face the fact of nursing home abuse and neglect, but it is – unfortunately – all too real. If your aging loved one has been harmed by either, the time to seek legal guidance from an experienced Macon nursing home neglect/abuse attorney is now.
Is It Nursing Home Abuse?
The hallmark of nursing home abuse is that it is intentional – or involves a reckless disregard for the victim’s safety. Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
If your loved one exhibits signs that he or she has been physically harmed (or has unexplained injuries) or you sense that something is off, it’s time to get to the bottom of the matter.
Or Is It Neglect?
While neglect does not have the element of intention, it can be just as serious and as dangerous for your elderly family member. Nursing home neglect refers to when a residential facility fails to adequately address a resident’s needs, including all the following:
- The need for a nutritious diet and adequate hydration
- The need for social interaction
- The need for assistance with mobility (including for those who are bed and/or chair bound)
- The need for adequate personal hygiene
- The need for the appropriate medications according to the appropriate schedule
- The need for a clean, safe living environment
