Nursing home abuse and neglect takes many forms. Not all signs of nursing home neglect and abuse are visible. You need skilled and experienced nursing home attorneys to protect your rights.

Nursing home abuse and neglect generally includes:

  • Malnutrition
  • Bed sores and pressure ulcers
  • Dehydration
  • Bruising and injuries
  • Hip fractures
  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • General neglect

The number of reported incidences of nursing home and elderly abuse is shocking. Studies show a variety of factors that contribute to elder abuse, including understaffing, unqualified or inadequately trained staff, and overcrowding. According to experts, approximately one third of families in the United States may be affected by the abuse of an elder relative while he or she is living in a nursing home. With the elderly population on the rise, the frequency of abuse is on the increase as well.

If a nursing home fails to administer care in a professional and caring manner, you may have a claim for damages. If your loved one is a victim of negligence or abuse in a nursing facility, you need a skilled and experienced South Carolina nursing home neglect attorney to help you obtain full and fair compensation for your losses.
