Hospital Neglect Attorneys and Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in South Dakota
If a nurse is found guilty of elder abuse, the state of South Dakota authorizes the Board of Nursing to take action against the nurse’s licenses for these violations. Although nurses are primarily responsible for caring for elderly individuals who are living in nursing home facilities, there are other staff members that are present and do in fact provide treatment to these individuals as well. While there are specific guidelines both the facility and the state have set to protect these residents, unfortunately things sometimes slip through the cracks and you don’t learn of the abuse going on until someone is severely harmed injured, or worse- dies as a result of the abuse or neglect.
If you are under the impression that your loved one is being victimized by a nurse or other health care professional while present at an adult living facility, we recommend you give us a call immediately to help you find an experienced South Dakota nursing home abuse lawyer who can speak with you and determine whether you have a viable case on your hands.
The longer you wait to report your complaints, the longer your loved one could be subjected to such conditions. Sadly, many of the residents living in these nursing homes suffer from diseases that affect their ability to recollect certain events and some aren’t able to communicate with their loved ones what is truly going on.
