Macon Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorneys
While nursing homes are supposed to be providing services and housing to residents who need additional care and assistance, many of these facilities do not meet the standards of care they should provide. Unfortunately, some nursing home residents experience neglect or abuse that results in serious injuries.
Nursing home mistreatment is grossly underreported, and many visiting loved ones are the people who notice that something might be wrong. If you believe that your family member sustained unnecessary and preventable injuries at their long-term care facility, you should not wait to discuss your concerns with a nursing home neglect and abuse lawyer in Macon. Contact the law firm of Ben F. Windham, PC, right away.
Nursing Home Injuries
Nursing home staff might engage in negligence when it comes to the everyday care or medical treatment that residents need. Some staff members might even intentionally cause harm by physical assault, sexual assault, emotional abuse, and more. Some injuries that might result from any of the above include:
- Broken bones
- Serious bruising
- Head injuries and concussions
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal injuries
- Sexually-transmitted diseases
- Mental trauma
- Problems from medication errors
- Behavioral changes
- Social withdrawal
- Unhealthy weight loss or gain
Whether your loved one suffered physical or mental injuries, the nursing home should be held fully accountable for any misconduct. If you notice that a loved one is fearful, has injuries in various stages of healing, or has experienced other unexplained physical or behavioral changes, they might have a claim against the nursing home.
