LAKE COUNTY INDIANA NURSING HOME ATTORNEYS

Nursing Home Lawyers Serving Northwest Indiana

Indiana Nursing Home Attorneys

Placing a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility is a hard decision for a family to make. You want to be there for your loved one, but know that they need help. A nursing home is supposed to protect your loved one and attend to your loved one’s needs. You expect that your loved one will be safe and comfortable.

Unfortunately, far too many nursing homes and their workers fail each day. Every day, our elderly friends and family are being abused, neglected. This neglect and negligence can be physical, emotional, or financial. Because our loved ones are often times weak and often times cannot fend for themselves, these failures go unspoken and undetected.

SOME TYPES OF NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE

Nursing home neglect and negligence takes on many forms. Common issues include neglecting the patient’s personal hygiene, failing to provide basic needs such as nourishment or a clean environment, medical neglect such as medication errors, failure to supervise, and emotional neglect which leaves residents lonely and depressed.

Some examples of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • Allowing patients to wander away
  • Failure to answer call lights
  • Failure to assist in personal hygiene
  • Failure to interact with clients to meet emotional needs
  • Failure to move the patient resulting in bed sores
  • Failure to prevent theft of the resident’s money or property
  • Failure to protect residents from other residents.
  • Failure to provide for appropriate medical care
  • Failure to provide proper nutrition and hydration
  • Failure to take reasonable precautions to prevent falls
  • Over-medication or failure to give medication

Some caregivers intentionally harm our loved ones. 

  • Emotional Abuse
  • Financial Exploitation
  • Physical abuse  
  • Sexual Abuse
