Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing homes can provide our elderly loved ones with a place of 24-hour care, allowing them to live in peace knowing there is always support available if needed. Unfortunately, there are cases where nursing home residents are not treated with the proper care, love, or medical requirements necessary for them to live healthy medical and mental lives.
At The Stroud Law Firm, we recognize this as a terrible problem, as many nursing home residents can’t fight for themselves. We want to help your loved ones get the justice they deserve if abused or neglected in a nursing home.
It goes without saying that as more and more of our loved ones are admitted to these facilities, the number of those subjected to nursing home abuse and neglect will rise. At The Stroud Law Firm, we are committed to fighting for those that cannot fight for themselves. We will do our very best to insure that our elderly are treated with respect and that they are given the best medical care and attention. If they are not, we will do our best to hold the wrongdoers accountable.
The law heavily regulates nursing homes and requires that they are adequately staffed, that residents are timely and properly medicated, that resident’s medical needs are met in a timely manner (such as treating bed sores). Unfortunately, without constant monitoring, these facilities, in an effort to keep overhead low and profits high, cut corners. As a result, the residents suffer from inadequate medical care, neglect, and in the worst cases, intentional physical abuse.
