Philadelphia Nursing Home Injury Attorney

Philadelphia Nursing Home Injury Attorney

Placing an elderly family member into a nursing home may be one of the toughest decisions you ever make.  However, the decision often becomes necessary as your family members age and you are simply unable to provide the level of assistance and medical care that they need.   After making the hard decision to place a loved one in a nursing home, you expect that the nursing facility will render the highest quality care and look after them.  Unfortunately, the conditions in some Philadelphia nursing homes and assisted living facilities are inadequate or downright dangerous. Nursing home abuse and neglect is a serious problem.  When a nursing home fails to provide the standard of care required by federal and state law it can and often does put a resident’s health and welfare at serious risk.  The Nursing Home Injury Help Center is provided as a resource for the elderly who have suffered the due to nursing home neglect and abuse and their family members.  If you believe that a friend or relative was injured due to negligent or abusive nursing home care, call or email us today for a free, no obligation consultation.
