Southern Florida is a popular retirement location where many of our elderly citizens spend the latter part of their lives in assisted living centers and nursing homes. With the growing number of retirees in nursing facilities, nursing home abuse is quickly becoming a more prominent issue. The chances that a family member or even yourself may deal with nursing home abuse is becoming far too common in an industry that is required both professionally and ethically to care for our loved ones.
The Senate Special Committee on Aging has been focusing considerable attention on the need to improve nursing home quality of care. However, with limited nursing and medical resources in Florida and around the country to monitor and enforce these regulations, many items are falling by the waste side. The result has been increased negligence and abuse to our elderly under the care of these facilities.
Some types of nursing home negligence and abuse include:
Falls (due to negligence of staff)
Starvation, dehydration and excessive weight loss
Medication Errors (due to negligence of staff)
The attorneys at Mallard & Sharp, PA are compassionate and caring and understand the impact nursing home abuse and neglect can have on the lives of the elderly and their families. They will listen to your unique situation and advise you on how best to proceed.
