Every Nursing Home is Capable of Abuse

by Staff Blogger | June 12th, 2017

No one wants to put their aging loved one in a nursing home. If you were able, you’d take on their continuous care yourself, but that’s just not always possible. He or she needs around-the-clock care that you simply can’t provide. The best we can do for our aging loved ones is to find a nursing home facility that best meets their needs. In Virginia, there are several great facilities, but even the best of facilities can employ less than trustworthy employees.

As a nursing home resident, your loved one has a number of rights. Those rights allow them the same freedoms that every other American is entitled to, such as the freedom to handle their own finances and have a say in their medical treatment plan. On a more fundamental level, they have the right to a safe and trauma-free living environment. However, defending that right on their own isn’t always possible. When their basic dignities are compromised, someone must step in on their behalf. That starts with you, and it ends with us.

If you suspect your loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, give us a call today for a free consultation. We’ll investigate the suspected abuse and fight to hold those responsible accountable. Don’t let your loved one suffer in silence. Contact us today for your free, no obligation consultation, and let us fight for their rights.
