Learn More About Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Virginia
Placing a family member in a nursing home is probably one of the more difficult decisions a person is faced with. But the fact is, caring for someone who is unable to complete normal day to day activities isn’t exactly easy, especially when you have your own family to care for and a job to maintain. When families choose to place their loved ones in a nursing home, they expect that they are going to be cared for properly, respected, and provided with any food, medication, etc. that is necessary for their overall wellbeing.
Although nursing homes have provided a way for elderly individuals to live and receive the help they require, some aren’t exactly handling them with the proper care. Just because a person suffers from dementia, Alzheimer’s, or another condition that has slowed them down or makes caring for them a little more difficult than the average person doesn’t permit a nurse or other health care professional to mistreat them.
Our Virginia nursing home abuse attorneys have handled cases where residents have been verbally abused, left in their own feces, left unfed, and even roughed up when transporting them from their bed to the bathroom. As difficult of a job that it may be, the staff who is employed in these facilities are not permitted to mistreated any resident under state laws.
