Nursing Home Abuse

As the people we love age we normally find comfort in knowing they are in good hands at a trusted nursing home facility, but we have discovered that nursing home abuse occurs with shocking regularity. We all have loved ones and unfortunately nursing home companies sometimes care more about making profits than caring for our loved ones.  According to a study conducted by the National Center on Elder Abuse, seniors victimized by abuse have a 300% higher risk of death than compared to seniors living in a nursing home absent of abuse. While there are both federal and state laws protecting the aging community, not all nursing homes abide by these laws.

If you have been a victim of nursing home abuse, or you suspect your loved one may have been subjected to nursing home abuse it is heartbreaking, but you are not powerless. With over $500 million recovered for our clients, please utilize our experience. Hiring the Illinois Hammer Injury Law Firm is the first step toward taking action. We will help guide you through the process of investigating allegations. Proving negligence takes a skilled and experienced team.

Receiving legal compensation can help victims and their family pay for medical care, as well as processes to cope with the improper care they have received, in addition to reparations for pain and suffering.

Nursing home abuse comes in many forms, all of which are against the law. Common examples are:

  • Neglect
  • Verbal or physical abuse
  • Emotional and psychological abuse
  • Financial abuse (such as stealing money or possessions)

Signs of nursing home abuse are:

  • Unexplained bruises and scabs
  • Bed sores
  • Emotional inconsistencies such as agitation or behaving distantly
  • Falls
  • Extreme weight loss
  • Missing medications

What are nursing home residents’ rights?

  • Access to proper physical and mental healthcare
  • Treatment that is respectful
  • Freedom of choice regarding care as well as visitation rights, activities, and scheduling
  • Protected communications regarding physical and mental needs
  • Access to paperwork to transfer homes when necessary
  • Full information on all fees charged during care at a nursing home facility
  • Receiving full access to all records pertaining to your (the resident’s) care
