Fight Back Against Nursing Home Abuse
Most people, regardless of their ages, want to live their lives in their own homes. When they are no longer able to do that for medical reasons, people seek care in nursing homes. Unfortunately, cases of nursing home negligence and nursing home abuse are far too often overlooked. If your loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse, an experienced Charlotte medical malpractice lawyer can help you take proper action.
At Elam & Rousseaux, PLLC, we are advocates for the victims of nursing home negligence.
Fight Back Against Abusers
Nursing home staff members who are guilty of negligence or abuse should be held responsible for their actions. Just because people are elderly and in poor medical shape does not mean they don’t have rights. Your loved one deserves the same standard of care from a nursing home that they would receive at a hospital or any other health care provider.
We Are Here To Support You
There is a tremendous reluctance on the part of society to recognize that nursing home residents are being treated poorly, mainly because people do not want to hear about it. However, when it happens to a member of your family, things change. By standing up for your loved one’s rights today, you can make sure that they get proper medical and financial compensation, and you can take action to help prevent future cases of nursing home negligence.
Many of our clients have suffered from the following:
- Medication errors
- Failure to monitor
- Inadequate staffing
- Bed sores
