Possaic County Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Possaic County Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

As a result of advances in medicine and greater awareness of nutrition and health, people are living longer and more productive lives. Between 2015 and 2050 the United States is expected to see a large growth in its older population with the number of people aged 65 and over to double to approximately 84 million people. Much of this increase will be “baby boomers,” the earliest of whom began reaching 65 in 2011.

With people living longer and the number of senior citizens increasing, more and more frequently elderly persons are placed in nursing homes. This usually occurs when seniors can no longer live independently and family members are no longer able to take care of them. Upon placement of a loved one in a nursing home, families are promised that they will receive the best of care. Unfortunately, this is often far from the case.

Nursing home abuse and neglect is a serious and growing problem throughout the U.S. and more prevalent than people may think. One of the most common problems contributing to improper care are understaffed homes. Sometimes caregivers are simply too busy to properly care for all of the facility’s residents. Nursing home statistics show that understaffed facilities can result in preventable accidents, untreated bedsores, inadequate medical care, malnutrition, dehydration, and inadequate sanitation and hygiene.  In other instances, elder abuse is more grotesque involving residents being punched, slapped, kicked or choked by nursing home staff.

When Should I Call a Lawyer?

The first thing you should do if you suspect a loved one is being mistreated at a nursing home is to talk with nursing home staff and administration. Speak up and ask questions. If they do not provide the answers you need, call the NJ Department of Health or the long term care ombudsman.

In cases of elder abuse or neglect that cause injury, it is safest to err on the side of caution. If you suspect that improper nursing home treatment resulted in serious injury or death, don’t let your loved one be a victim twice. Call an experienced attorney right away.
