Cypress Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Cypress nursing home lawyers work with the victims of nursing home abuses to collect damages for poor care and treatment that results in physical or emotional injury.  Victims of nursing home abuses suffer a wide variety of problems, including physical pain and trauma.  There are even rare cases in which nursing home residents die due to poor living conditions and the lack of care offered in their residential facility.

Of course, most people are horrified when they hear about the problems associated with many nursing homes, especially when they realize the extent of the problem.  The National Center on Elder Abuse warns that nursing home abuse and neglect is a growing problem.  In fact, about 11 percent of all nursing home residents report some form of abuse or neglect.  Given that this is most likely a highly underreported crime, the chances are that at least one-quarter or more of nursing home residence have suffered abuse and neglect.

The Basic Rights Every Nursing Home Resident Should Have

Nursing home residents have rights that should never be violated.  Unfortunately, the lack of training and supervision of some nursing home employees means that many patients’ rights are not considered.  Further, nursing homes may attract a certain type of criminal that enjoys preying on the weak and helpless, and sees the nursing home as a place to supply victims.  No matter what the conditions are in the nursing home, no one has a right to infringe on the victim’s privacy and right to live free of pain and suffering.

However, nursing home crimes are often never reported.  One study estimates that only 20 percent of all the crimes committed in nursing homes are ever spoken of to anyone else.  This means that four out of five nursing home residents who are victims of abuse do not speak out.  Sometimes this is from fear; other times the resident may be unable to express what is happening to them due to illness, strokes, or diseases such as Alzheimer’s.  If you have a loved one in a nursing home who is non-communicative, it is even more important that you take responsibility for checking up on your loved one regularly.

Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Nursing home attorneys in Cypress help you keep your loved one safe and ensure that no one will hurt him or her.  This is because once nursing home abuses are reported they are quite likely to stop.  Most abuses in nursing homes are crimes of opportunity or crimes of neglect, and they are often relatively easy to end.  Even in cases where there is an active aggression against nursing home residents, the people committing these outrages will not be able to continue once the spotlight is trained on their actions.

It is important to act quickly if you suspect nursing home abuse.  These types of problems tend to develop rapidly and escalate at a scary pace.  If a person who is abusing your loved one is left unchecked, he or she may continue until real damage is done.  Instead, speak to a professional nursing home attorney today and begin the process of setting your mind at ease.
