Macon Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse Lawyer
Nursing homes are designed to help the most vulnerable among us live their fullest and most rewarding lives in the safety of a controlled environment that provides them with the care and attention they require. If your loved one has, instead, been harmed by a nursing home facility’s neglect or abuse, the situation is dire, and you need the experienced legal guidance of a knowledgeable Macon nursing home neglect/abuse attorney on your side.
Nursing Home Neglect
While nursing home neglect lacks the intention to cause harm that nursing home abuse requires, the damage can be just as devastating in that it is often more difficult to detect and thus can fester for longer periods of time and cause more considerable damage in the process. Nursing home neglect refers to failing to provide required care and can include things like:
- Failing to provide residents with necessary medications according to the appropriate schedule
- Failing to provide residents with the necessary assistance with movement (bedsores can be a sign of this form of negligence)
- Failing to provide adequate hydration and nutrition
- Failing to provide ample opportunities for socializing
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse is all the more egregious because it means that the harm your loved one endured was inflicted purposefully. Nursing home abuse can come in any of the following categories:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
