In New Jersey, nursing facilities must uphold a standard of care for the welfare, comfort, and social life of their residents. Residents in nursing homes are protected by federal standards, and if accusations of resident neglect or abuse are verified, a nursing facility may be penalized and have its ratings reduced. When a senior or disabled resident is hurt, they frequently lack the ability or desire to speak up to defend their rights.
You put your confidence in the nursing home to provide the finest care possible for your elderly loved one. You need someone who will actively seek justice and guard against harming other defenseless victims.
You can rely on Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC to be by your side and protect your loved one when you require a nursing home abuse attorney in New Jersey. Our compassionate lawyers can provide you with the courageous advice and defense you require. They have years of successful experience.
Abuse and neglect are two distinct crimes that hurt victims in various ways. When a person’s essential needs—such as food, water, appropriate medicine, clothes, and attention to the person’s physical and mental health—are not met, it is considered to be neglect. Neglect can harm a resident when these things are not provided.
The deliberate infliction of damage is abuse. Abuse differs from neglect in that it is active and done with the purpose of inflicting pain, harm, or mental agony on the resident.
Don’t wait to see what happens if your loved one who is a resident of a nursing home or long-term care facility in New Jersey has shown indications of harm or fear due to another patient or staff member. The safety of residents is a fairly common problem in nursing facilities. Only through pursuing reparations on behalf of your loved one and other residents can change be effected for them.
