What do I do if I suspect nursing home abuse?

If you are seeing signs such as weight loss, unresponsiveness or unexplained injuries in a loved one who lives in a nursing home, then these may be signs of nursing home abuse. These signs should not be ignored; it is important to take action to protect your loved one.

It is required by law for the management of a nursing home to address any concerns you may have about your loved one’s safety. They are legally obligated to have a written policy surrounding nursing home abuse and neglect. If they fail to address your concerns, you may want to reach out to an experienced nursing home abuse attorney to look over your options.
