Preventable Nursing Home Accidents
Lawyers holding negligent parties accountable
If you have a loved one who is a resident in a West Virginia nursing home, you have good reasons to be concerned about the quality of care and treatment provided by these facilities. Some injuries, illnesses or health conditions are unavoidable, but others are a direct result of abuse or negligence. The nursing home abuse attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC fight for the rights of residents.
Food, medication and a place to sleep are not enough to maintain physical and mental well-being. Injuries and illness must be diagnosed and treated, wounds cleaned and dressed, and the resident should have easy access and transport to activities or daily walks. Residents often need assistance with routine tasks such as bathing and dressing. A lack of attention to everyday human needs can cause a resident to become unhappy, depressed or withdrawn and lead to a shortened life.
