Our Loved Ones Deserve the Best

When family members move into nursing homes, we expect them to be treated with respect, given exceptional healthcare, and afforded a comfortable environment.

However, understaffing, low pay, and substandard training all contribute to cases of nursing home abuse and neglect, betraying the trust we put in these nursing homes.

Thousands of elderly Americans are abused each year in nursing homes and other facilities responsible for their care. Get the justice and compensation your loved one deserves.


Potential Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

If you suspect that your loved one has been a victim of some form of nursing home abuse or neglect, it is important that you take immediate action.

Many nursing home employees are underpaid, overworked, and unfortunately, poorly trained. Neglect and abuse may occur when an elderly person does not receive the proper level of care he or she requires. Should a nursing home fail to provide the promised care, a resident can suffer from physical and/or psychological harm. It is important that you are aware of potential signs that your loved one has been harmed in order to prevent or stop it.

  1. Open wounds

  2. Bed/pressure sores

  3. Sudden and unexplained change in weight

  4. Poor personal hygiene, smell of urine or feces, soiling

  5. Recurrent infection

  6. Sudden loss of hair

  7. Emotional withdrawal

  8. Physical issues from lack of nutrition

  9. Loss or decrease in mobility

  10. Unexplained injuries

  11. Fractures

Knowing the warning signs of abuse can save your loved one from wrongful death or unnecessary harm.

If you suspect a nursing home is not providing the level of care that they promised, contact the New York State Department of Health at 1-888-201-4563 or www.health.ny.gov/facilities/nursing/complaints.htm.

If you suspect nursing home neglect or your family member is unable to speak out, there are several signs you can look for:

  • Untreated bedsores

  • Open wounds, cuts, bruises, or welts

  • Torn clothing or broken personal items

  • Bruises in a pattern that would suggest restraints

  • Excessive and sudden weight loss

  • Fleas, lice, or dirt on resident or in resident’s room

  • Abnormally pale complexion

  • Fecal/urine odors

  • Poor personal hygiene or other unattended health problems

  • Signs of a careless staff

  • Lack of proper heating or cooling in nursing home

  • Caregiver’s inability to explain resident’s condition

  • Caregiver’s refusal to allow visitors to see resident alone

  • Caregiver allowing resident to wander off the premises

  • Sudden change in resident’s medication

We take for granted that our family members and loved ones are being well-cared for. They may not want to use their precious time with loved ones to talk about something as horrible as nursing home abuse, or they may be suffering from a degenerative disease, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, that prevents them from speaking out.

If you notice any of these signs or suspect your loved one may be suffering in a nursing home facility, contact the personal injury lawyers at Greene Reid & Pomeroy immediately. We will investigate your claim and fight to protect the rights of your loved one.

We have experience defending the rights of nursing home residents in and out of court, and we will do everything we can to make sure your family members are treated with respect and are receiving the healthcare they need.
