Nursing Home Negligence & Abuse Lawyers

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.

Nursing Home Neglect Vs. Abuse

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.

Examples of Neglect and Abuse
