Massachusetts Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
Families in Massachusetts place a great amount of trust in nursing homes to provide the high level of care their loved ones deserve as they age. However, in far too many instances, nursing home staff breaches that trust by taking advantage of the elderly’s vulnerable state through neglect or abuse, thereby negatively impacting the health and well-being of residents.
Unfortunately, the Massachusetts nursing abuse lawyers at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, recognize that physical and emotional abuse occurs all too frequently. We understand that discovering the neglect or abuse of your loved one is alarming and cause for distress, but our experienced legal team is dedicated to holding the responsible parties accountable for physically, financially and/or emotionally harming nursing home residents.
Common Forms of Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse has the potential to negatively affect nursing home residents in many ways. Common forms of nursing home abuse include:
- Use of force
- Bed sores
- Inappropriate use of medication
- Intimidation by yelling
- Ignoring the elderly
- Isolating an elder
- Sexual abuse
- Neglect or abandonment by caregiver
- Financial exploitation
Any form of nursing home abuse can lead to devastating consequences to an elderly resident. When a resident is exposed to abuse, he or she may experience deteriorating health and even psychological trauma. This is an unacceptable violation, and a Massachusetts nursing home abuse attorney may help you pursue restitution from those responsible.
