Nursing homes are intended to provide a place of safety for elderly or infirm individuals who acquire additional care. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 1.4 million Americans currently reside in nursing homes across the nation. This number will rise in the coming years as the population of the United States continues to age. While generally these facilities provide excellent care, the overall rate of nursing home abuse is on the rise. In Georgia, nursing home negligence and abuse is surprisingly commonplace, shattering the lives of many older individuals and their loved ones.
At Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, our law firm represents nursing home residents who have been neglected or abused. These cases are complex and proving the neglect can be difficult. We believe our elderly should be cared for and revered in society, and we aggressively seek justice for those who have been treated cruelly and unfairly by nursing home staff, residents, or the facility itself.
It is important that you and your family learn the types of nursing home abuse that can occur so that you can be on the lookout for its signs. Common forms of nursing home abuse include, among others:
If your loved one is in a nursing home, it is important that you be on the alert for any signs of neglect or abuse. Visit the nursing home often and at unexpected times.
