Georgia Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Resourceful Representation for Nursing Home Abuse Victims in Georgia

Did you know that nursing home abuse occurs all the time, every day, across the United States? No one wants to think that the home or facility into which they entrust the care of their elderly loved one could ever betray that trust, but unfortunately it happens. A variety of factors are to blame, from under-trained staff members to overworked employees to improper vetting and background checking protocols to insufficient safety measures. Nursing home abuse/negligence is always wrong, however, and our Georgia law firm is here to support you if you or a loved one has been the victim of abuse in a long-term care facility such as a nursing home.

What Is Nursing Home Abuse?

There are different types of nursing home abuse; it does not always look the same. Some examples of ways abuse in a long-term care facility can manifest include:

  • Sexual Abuse

  • Financial Exploitation

  • Negligence

  • Physical Abuse

  • Emotional/Mental Abuse

  • Verbal Abuse

Signs of abuse can range from unexplained injuries, bruises, and broken bones to obvious dehydration / malnutrition to bedsores. Unsanitary conditions or strange, unpleasant, or strained behavior between nursing home residents and staff members are also tips that something may be wrong. If you see or suspect something, say something. Take action to report your concerns to the appropriate authorities. Protect your loved one and other residents from abuse by taking a stand.
