Placentia Nursing Home Attorneys

Placing a loved one in a nursing home can be a difficult decision for most people. We all want our loved ones to be taken care of, but we may have heard stories about abuses and other terrible events in nursing homes.  Unfortunately, in this case, rumor may all too often have a basis in fact. For those who have suffered a nursing home abuse tragedy, there are options. Contacting a qualified Placentia nursing home abuse attorney is the first step towards recovery in an awful situation.

The Nursing Home Abuse Center warns families that the warning signs of nursing home abuse or neglect should not be ignored. They include:

  • Bruising, bleeding, cuts, burns, and abrasions
  • Sudden weight change (both loss and gain)
  • Soiling of clothes or bed linens
  • Poor hygiene
  • Torn or stained clothing or bedding
  • Listlessness, lethargy, and emotional withdrawal
  • Strange behavior
  • Sudden transfer of funds or other unusual banking transactions

While this list is not all-inclusive, any of these signs should certainly be considered something to check into.
The best advice is to listen to your “gut.” If you feel something is wrong, the chances are very great that something actually is wrong.� On the other hand, even if you do not feel that “tickle” of unease, you should still respect and listen to the opinion of the nursing home resident, because he or she may have valuable information about the treatment that goes on in the nursing home when you are not visiting.

Placentia nursing home lawyers work with nursing home abuse victims and their families to recover damages for the poor treatment they receive. Nursing home abuse can range from mild to severe.  In its most severe form, nursing home abuse or neglect can result in death.  Even something as simple as withholding needed medication can turn into serious abuse if the victim suffers from this treatment.

If you have a loved one in a nursing home, pay attention to the signs of abuse and contact professionals if something is wrong. Even if you do not have “proof,” nursing home attorneys in Placentia can often help you discover existing problems by guiding you through the process of talking to your loved one and the nursing home itself.  Some victims are reluctant to testify because they fear a backlash of heightened abuse; a professional nursing home attorney can not only prevent this from happening but may also be able to get a victim to “open up” with skillful questioning.

Without a doubt, nursing home abuses and neglects are frightening to victims and their families. However, the good news is that expert nursing home lawyers in Placentia can help nursing home residents and their loved ones achieve peace and put a stop to abusive behavior.  Begin your nursing home case today with a free consultation with a nursing home lawyer, even if you do not have concrete evidence of nursing home abuse.  Your loved one deserves the very best in treatment, and should not be subject to torment, abuse, or neglect at the hands of nursing home employees or other residents. Please call us at 949-203-3814 for a free consultation if you feel that your loved one has been a victim.
