Nursing Home Negligence

When you place a loved one in the care of a nursing home, you expect that their needs will be met and that they be cared for. Unfortunately, negligence and outright abuse in nursing homes are all too common. Although many state and federal regulations have been established to protect the elderly in these settings, gross violations occur every single day, tragically compromising the health, well-being and dignity of some of our society’s most vulnerable members.

Nursing home abuse and negligence comes in many different forms.  The Law Office of Edward M. Galang represents injured nursing home residents and the families of those wrongfully killed in cases involving:

 

  • Bed Sores, Pressure Sores, Decubitus Ulcers
  • Sepsis
  • Wandering and Elopement
  • Falls
  • Physical or Sexual Assault or Abuse
  • Physical or Chemical Restraints
  • Verbal Abuse
  • Malnutrition or Dehydration
  • Medication Errors
  • Clogged Breathing Tubes
  • Burns
  • Alzheimer’s and other dementias

Common signs of nursing home negligence may be:

  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Frequent falls
  • Pressure Sores
  • Unexplained injuries such as bruises or broken bones
  • Changes in behavior
  • Overmedication
  • The inability of a caretaker to sufficiently explain the patient’s condition
