Fort Lauderdale Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

When looking for the right nursing home to take care of your elderly loved one, you want a facility where the staff is well-trained, professional, experienced, and caring. Unfortunately, many facilities over the years have been found guilty of nursing home abuse and medical malpractice. Elder abuse is a serious legal issue, and anyone who has been seriously injured by an abusive nurse or medical professional in an elderly care facility of any kind deserves to bring the issue to light and obtain compensation through a personal injury claim.

Types of Elder Abuse in Nursing Homes

Nurses, doctors, and other staff members at nursing homes can demonstrate negligence and commit abuse in a number of different ways. Patients can suffer injury and illness due to prescription errors, or they can become malnourished or dehydrated due to neglect. Bedsores are a common injury for patients who are immobile or dependent on the nurses for mobility. Inadequate supervision could result in wandering or elopement, which can endanger the patient and could result in a fall, broken bones, and other complications.

Patients can also suffer from physical emotional abuse such as beatings, threats, and degrading statements from the staff as well as the other residents. Financial abuse is also possible, where the facility takes advantage of the patient's helplessness to access their accounts and to charge more than is owed. Speak with a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney right away if you are looking to file such a claim on your own behalf or on behalf of an elderly loved one.
