PA Nursing Home Lawyers
Wieand Law Firm, LLC knows that if you are concerned about elder abuse or elder neglect in your loved one’s nursing home, you should reach out to our PA nursing home lawyers as soon as possible. Elder abuse or neglect does not always present as obvious physical abuse. You may not see abuse take the form of bruises or broken bones. Instead, your loved one may not be getting the medical care and attention they deserve or they may not be living in reasonable conditions. If you are concerned that this is the case, please call our nursing home lawyers in Pennsylvania today. We want to make sure your loved one gets the compensation they deserve.
What form does elder abuse take?
As noted above, elder abuse is not necessarily physical abuse. Elderly people are more at risk for different types of abuse and neglect because they are particularly vulnerable and may be unable to defend themselves. There are multiple ways that a staff member at a nursing home could be abusing your loved one:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
What does it mean for someone in a nursing home to neglect my loved one?
Our nursing home lawyers in PA know that abuse can come in the form of neglect. This occurs when their caregiver at the nursing home does not live up to the standards in place for taking care of your loved one. Your loved one has certain needs that must be met and because they are likely unable to meet those needs themselves, their caregiver must on their behalf.
For example, your loved one needs the basics: food, water, a safe place to live, and proper hygiene. Depending on their condition, our PA nursing home lawyers know that they may not be able to take care of themselves. Thus, if their caregiver fails to provide them with any of these basic needs, we would argue that they are neglecting your loved one.
