If you suspect a loved one is suffering from abuse, it is imperative to contact a Quad Cities Personal Injury Attorney from VanDerGinst Law to protect your legal rights.
Every Case of Abuse is Unique
Although these agencies do much to protect residents, over one million are subjected to nursing home abuse every year. The abuse can be a single incident or a recurring event and involve either negligence or active abuse. malnutrition, dehydration, bed sores, over-sedation, poor medical care, gangrene, aspiration pneumonia, or physical harm caused by a fall can all constitute nursing home abuse. Less obvious signs of abuse include lack of supervision, abandonment, theft, sexual assault, coercion, and physical or mental abuse.
The victim has a right to damages if any of these things happen while they are a nursing home resident. through litigation, the nursing home may lose its certification as a penalty for failing to provide the expected care. This lack of certification can lead to a loss of federal funding.
