Nursing Home Negligence Making Your Justice Possible

Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys in Pittsburgh

Fighting on Behalf of Your Elderly Loved One

As much as many of us wish we could care for our elderly loved ones, life’s obligations often prevent us from doing so, which is why we often entrust their care to a nursing home facility. In the hands of trained professionals, you expect your loved ones to be given the attention and assistance they need to continue thriving. Unfortunately, some facilities do not meet these expectations. If your loved one has suffered abuse or neglect while in the care of a nursing home facility, the legal team at Kontos, Mengine, Killion, & Hassen in Pittsburgh will fight on their behalf. You can rely on us to hold the responsible parties accountable for your loved one’s suffering.

Common Causes of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Nursing home facilities are a big business and, unfortunately, some care more about their bottom line than about caring for the residents that depend on them. When nursing home facilities employ cost-cutting strategies, it may result in understaffing or inadequately trained staff. Without enough employees to care for residents, not everyone will receive the attention they need. In these high-stress, poorly run environments, the percentage of abuse and neglect cases is often quite high.

Below is a list of common forms of nursing home abuse and neglect:

  • Bed sores, which can be prevented by properly caring for and moving the patient.
  • Physical abuse, which includes the use of any rough physical treatment or punishment.
  • Misuse of physical or chemical restraints, such as sedatives or straps to subdue or restrain a patient.
  • Sexual abuse, including verbal advances, inappropriate touches, or other forms of sexual harassment.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Nursing home abuse and neglect can take many forms and, therefore, there are many possible indicators.

Here are some common signs of nursing home abuse and neglect:

  • Poor hygiene
  • Head trauma or brain injuries
  • Medication errors
  • Falls
  • Suspicious injuries
  • Wandering
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Skin conditions associated with neglect or abuse

If you notice any of these signs in your elderly loved one, do not hesitate to seek legal counsel immediately.
