Staffing Issues & Nursing Home Abuse
Representation for Abused Elderlies & Their Families

If you think that the inadequate staffing issues in your loved one's nursing home led to abuse or injury, you must take immediate steps in order to stop the abuse. Hold the nursing home responsible for their negligent actions and oversight by filing a nursing home abuse claim. In doing so, you may be able to protect your loved one from further harm, not to mention helping to protect the safety of other nursing home residents.
What to Do If You Suspect Nursing Home Abuse Due to Staffing Issues
You have probably tried to confront nursing home staff and administration members yourself as soon as you suspected that your loved one was experiencing abuse and neglectful care. You were probably given an explanation that made no sense or assured that your loved one never experienced abuse or neglect.
Listen to your intuition. If you have a gut feeling that something is wrong, you have a very good reason to investigate. Call the local authorities and speak with an attorney about filing a claim to compensate your loved one for any damages suffered.
