Koohanim Law Firm Representing Victims of Nursing Home and Neglect

Nursing home abuse and neglect is a common occurrence in the U.S. It is difficult for a victim of nursing home neglect or abuse to seek help or explain the incident to someone else. Also, many elderly patients suffer from memory loss and communication problems. As such, many nursing home abuse and neglect cases go unreported.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Cases

Nursing abuse and neglect can lead to severe injuries, especially due to the frail state of most victims. The injuries could be very painful and even life threatening. The following are some common nursing home abuse and neglect issues:

  • Bed sores
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Prescription errors
  • Overdose
  • Lack of supervision
  • Wandering and leaving the facility
  • Restraint injuries
  • Assault
  • Slip and falls
