Don’t let nursing homes get away with abusing or neglecting your loved one. As the baby boomer generation ages, more and more families are faced with a tremendous decision – whether or not to place a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility. With aging comes a multitude of health issues such as heart disease, kidney disease, blindness and Alzheimer’s disease, all of which cause complications and require medical attention that many families cannot handle alone. Making the choice to entrust a loved one to a health care facility can be painful, but we trust that these institutions are run by and staffed with professionals who will provide the best possible care.
Unfortunately, that is not always the case. The Waxman Report found that in about 1 in 10 nursing homes, citations were filed regarding abuse that had the potential of causing serious, and sometimes fatal, injuries to residents. If you believe your loved one has been the victim of abuse, our firm is prepared to act for their interests immediately. If you suspect that your relative has been abused or neglected, contact Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC.
