    Nursing home abuse FAQs

    Does my case amount to nursing home abuse? 

    As with many nursing home neglect victims, it can be difficult to determine if nursing home neglect has occurred. You might feel uncomfortable about your circumstances or are uncertain about your rights if you’ve experienced mistreatment in a nursing home. 

    If you are uncertain about your case or simply have questions and concerns about what you or an elderly loved one has experienced, don’t hesitate to reach out to an experienced nursing home neglect lawyer. Our attorneys will analyze your case to determine if what you or a loved one is experiencing rises to the level of nursing home abuse or neglect.

    How do I know I have a valid nursing home neglect case?

    If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a nursing home and you suspect the injury was because of negligence or outright abuse, you have legal rights and options. Our attorneys will review your case to determine the extent of your injury, how the injury occurred, and if parties like the facility or faculty and staff could be held responsible. Your lawyer can help collect the necessary evidence that proves the nursing home operators were negligent, allowing you to build a robust case. 

    What are nursing homes required to do if a resident develops symptoms of a respiratory illness?

    All nursing homes and assisted living facilities have strict guidelines to prevent the spread of infections, viruses, and contagious diseases. Some CDC guidelines include immediately isolating the resident from others to avoid exposure. Staff members must wear personal protective equipment (PPE) when in contact with the resident, and the nursing home may have additional guidelines in place to ensure the mitigation of respiratory illnesses. 

    I believe my loved one was the victim of nursing home abuse. What do I need to do?
