Protecting Loved Ones From Nursing Home Abuse

When you make the tough choice to place your elderly or disabled loved one in the care of an assisted living community, nursing home or other skilled care facility, you expect doctors, nurses and other care providers to look out for your loved one's best interests. While we expect the medical providers to treat our family members with the same compassion we do, this doesn't always happen. Instead our loved ones are viewed as a burden and their needs are not met, which is heartbreaking.

In North Carolina and throughout the country, nursing homes and care providers are spread too thin, lack proper training and resources, or in some of the most tragic cases, are willfully negligent or abusive toward the people they are meant to care for. We are here to deliver justice to the families that suffer from this type of unethical behavior.

Our Attorneys Can Help Protect Your Loved Ones

At Randall & Stump, PLLC, our team of lawyers has witnessed firsthand the anger, frustration and sense of betrayal that comes with incidents of nursing home abuse and neglect. You trusted care providers to look out for your loved one, and when that trust is betrayed, you want to do whatever it takes to see that your loved one receives justice and appropriate care.

Nursing home abuse is not always easy to detect. As your attorneys, we can help you spot the warning signs and take appropriate legal action. Perhaps you've noticed a significant change in mood, unexplained bruising, poor hygiene or the early signs of malnutrition. When it comes to these types of cases, if you see signs of abuse and/or neglect, it's important to say something.

Some of the most common types of abuse and neglect cases we handle involve:

  • Isolation and a severe lack of attention
  • Failure to treat sores or other health issues
  • Failure to provide for the resident's hygiene and cleanliness
  • Failure to provide medication (or overmedication)
  • Use of restraint
  • Emotional abuse
  • Force feeding
  • Wrongful death caused by abuse or neglect

By working closely with you and your family, we can hold negligent or abusive care providers accountable. We can investigate allegations of abuse, pursue compensation and ultimately see that others don't suffer from the same conditions or abusive behaviors.
