Unfortunately, there are more instances of nursing home abuse occurring that go unreported. If you know of an elderly person who has been hurt or neglected in a nursing home in Bullhead City, or if you suspect mistreatment, you should contact a personal injury attorney immediately. At Lerner and Rowe, our lawyers will help ensure that proper investigations are conducted and will fight to get your loved one the compensation they deserve to go towards the recovery process as well as relocation to a safer environment.
Nursing Home Abuse Isn’t Just Physical
Elderly abuse and neglect can be physical, but it may also be emotional and/or financial. As a family member or friend of a person that resides in a nursing home or other long-term care facility, be aware of the signs of abuse or neglect if you suspect your elderly loved one is being purposefully harmed by a staff member or other facility caregiver.
Some signs of neglect include:
- Cuts, bed sores or wounds
- Frequent bruising
- Soiled linens or clothing
- Unusual weight fluctuations
- Depressed or anti-social behavior
Your loved one should not have to suffer for a moment longer. Lerner and Rowe nursing home lawyers know the proper channels of investigation and the procedures required to navigate the nursing home bureaucracy so they can expedite your loved one’s case to stop the abuse as soon as possible.
