    Standards of Care in Nursing Homes

    Nursing homes, long-term care, assisted living facilities, and caregivers are required to provide elderly individuals with an acceptable standard of care. These standards encompass all levels of treatment and care that should be provided to seniors. When we take on a nursing home facility injury case claim, one of the first things we do is to investigate it thoroughly to determine whether or not the standard of care has been followed. In many cases, they have not. Once we have the necessary facts to make this determination, we can then begin working to establish liability.

    Signs of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

    Because elderly individuals are not always capable of speaking up on their own behalf, it’s important that family members and loved ones are aware of and vigilant about recognizing the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect. If you notice any signs that your loved one is being mistreated or is receiving substandard care, report the suspected abuse right away.
