Nursing Home Neglect

Neglect is Abuse

As nursing home negligence lawyers, the team at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA is dedicated to fighting for victims of nursing home neglect.  While often overlooked, nursing home neglect accounts for countless serious injuries and wrongful deaths each year.  In fact, neglect is one of the most pervasive forms of nursing home abuse.

Nursing homes, facilities, and staff have an obligation to provide adequate, professional care to elder residents and patients.  This includes not only providing a physically safe environment, but also attending to residents’ needs.

When nursing homes and staff neglect the basic needs of your family member or loved one, you have the right to take legal action.  The attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA are here to help.

Types of Neglect

With over three decades of litigation and personal injury experience, we can help your family member or loved one when any nursing home neglect has occurred.  Common types of nursing home neglect include:

  • Medical Neglect: Failure to provide sufficient, attentive medical care can lead to bed sores, missed medication doses, and infections, among other injuries.

 

  • Personal Hygiene Neglect: Bathing, grooming, and using the toilet can be difficult for many nursing home residents. Neglectful staff refusing to offer or provide assistance can lead to unsanitary and medically dangerous living conditions.

 

  • Basic Needs Neglect: In some cases, nursing home residents may not receive adequate food or water. Alarmingly, nursing home neglect lawsuits stemming from dehydration and malnutrition are not uncommon.

Nursing home neglect can come in many forms, but all neglect is abuse.  Your loved ones and family members deserve better.

If you or someone you know has suffered injury, medical complications, or wrongful death as the result of nursing home neglect, call or email our nursing home negligence lawyers now to schedule your free consultation.
