Nursing Home Assault Injuries
There is no excuse for anyone to attack, assault, or physically harm a nursing home resident or patient. And yet it happens all the time. While state and federal agencies offer some oversight, too many cost-cutting nursing home facilities and businesses employ dangerous and unvetted employees who are a risk to those we love.
Assault injuries may or may not be obvious. Contact an experienced nursing home injury attorney if you notice anything suspicious, including:
Other more obvious signs of assault may include physical injuries and direct complaints of assault. Whether obvious or merely suspected, signs of assault should NEVER be overlooked or downplayed. Nursing home abuse and assault are reprehensible, and those responsible must be held accountable for their terrible actions.
