Do you think your loved one has been the victim of Nursing Home Abuse?
Many thousands of senior citizens in this country are abused each year in a Nursing Home that was responsible for their care. A recent study by the New England Journal of Medicine found that violations exist at approximately 93% of nursing homes in America. This is an alarming statistic.
Abuse in a Nursing Home in Florida may take on several forms. Sexual abuse, emotional/mental abuse and physical abuse are the main three with the latter being the most prevalent.
If you have noticed any sign that may indicate nursing home abuse it is critical that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Robert E. Gluck can help you determine your rights and options in the first meeting. The caregiver and the facility may have legal liability and you should let me determine if it is a viable option in your situation.
You should be monitoring any elderly person in such a facility for both their mental and physical condition as it is critical to identify the signs of nursing home abuse as soon as possible. The physical abuse can include the actual infliction of physical pain intentionally, discomfort, negligent infliction of pain by deviating from accepted standards resulting in bed sores and other injuries, beatings, sexual assaults, malnutrition, deprivation, or the use of unnecessary or inappropriate or unauthorized restraints.
Sometimes the abuse can be mental, which, although not as easily noticeable, can have effects just as harmful. Your loved one, in these scenarios, will be left feeling hopeless, uncared for and exploited. If you notice your loved one is overly agitated or withdrawn, they may have been the victim of mental abuse.
