Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys
We all know an elderly or handicapped person. This person may be a neighbor, a teacher, or a family member. At some point, they may no longer be able to take care of themselves and require constant care. This may be because of failing physical or mental health, or a combination of both. Eventually, a tough decision is made to transfer such a person to a nursing home.
A nursing home’s purpose is to care for people who require constant medical attention and care. These residents are vulnerable and entrusted to the nursing home’s care. Unfortunately, this trust is frequently violated because of abuse and neglect to their residents. At Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz, PLC, we are committed to holding nursing homes and their corporate owners accountable for their actions.
Corporate entities trying to make a profit often fail to hire adequate numbers of nursing home staff, or to adequately train, supervise, and monitor their current staff. As a result, bed sores (decubitus ulcers), infections, nursing home falls, dehydration, and malnutrition are just a few of the injuries from which nursing home residents suffer, which can result in death.
