NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE INJURY ATTORNEY IN BALTIMORE, MD

Throughout the Baltimore area, there are approximately 75 nursing homes for the elderly community to choose when looking for professional caretakers to help them. There are numerous instances of nursing home abuse and negligence, unfortunately taking place within some of these facilities. No one ever expects a family member or friend to be the victim of abuse or neglect in a nursing home. Residents are vulnerable, and family and friends rely upon the facility to ensure that their loved one receives the care he or she deserves.

Nursing home negligence is when the facility fails to protect its residents from health and safety hazards. This can result in injuries such as broken bones, bedsores, pressure ulcers, dehydration, malnutrition, and other medical conditions which cause harm and even death. When this happens, it is important to immediately address the situation, which often includes obtaining legal representation to protect the rights of the injured. The nursing home abuse attorneys at Whitney, LLP offer free legal consultations for all of our clients interested in pursuing a claim against a nursing home negligence for physical abuse or injuries. Take a look at what clients have to say about us.

WHAT FALLS UNDER ELDERLY NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE INJURY?

The CDC (Center for Disease Control) defines elderly nursing home injury abuse as “any abuse and neglect of persons age 60 and older by a caregiver or another person in a relationship involving an expectation of trust.” Currently, there are over 3 million Americans living under the care of a nursing home who are all vulnerable to abuse by a caregiver. The CDC breaks down the maltreatment of elderly people into six categories:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Neglect
  • Financial abuse
  • Abandonment

Family members many times do not have the required skills to care for an elderly loved one, requiring that support to be provided by a nursing home. In some circumstances, not all care provided at nursing homes is performed correctly, and instead is performed negligently. This is when elderly nursing home abuse or injury occurs. Neglect is a failure of the facility, its employees, or service providers to proper services while taking care of your loved one. Making sure you’re equipped with the knowledge to spot the “warning signs” of abuse that can take place to a loved one can save their mental and physical health.

ELDERLY NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE ABUSE “WARNING SIGNS”

A nursing home resident depends on the facility taking care of them, and family and friends rely upon the care providers to ensure that their loved one receives the attention he or she deserves. Unfortunately, proper care is not always provided and that leads to injuries and harm, which can rise from negligence in many forms. Often a family member or friend will not witness the abuse or neglect, so here is a list of “warning signs” to identify elder abuse/neglect:

  • Bedsores
  • Falls with injuries and/or unexplained injuries
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Overmedicating patient
  • Sudden changes in patient behavior or prognosis
  • Signs of sexual abuse, venereal diseases, or genital infections
  • Staff refusing or delaying visits by the family to see the resident
  • A transfer to hospital for an infection, wound care, or malnutrition
