Nursing Home Abuse Attorney in the Bronx
Seasoned Representation for Nursing Home Abuse
It is a sad fact that most nursing homes do not meet federal guidelines for staffing and many deliberately try to get by on a minimum of staff. In an effort to save money, many use poorly-trained, low-paid workers and try to reduce their costs in hiring registered nurses. As a result there is an increasing amount of nursing home abuse. This includes neglect, unsanitary conditions, failure to attend to medical problems, giving the wrong amounts of medicine and at the wrong times, physical restraints, forcing patients to stay in a room they do not want, slapping, assault and battery and sexual abuse. If you begin to suspect this is going on at a home where you have a loved one, you need to take action. With the help of a Bronx personal injury attorney, you can get to the bottom of the situation and obtain financial compensation.
A victim of nursing home abuse, on proof of negligent care, is entitled to the following damages:
- Medical expenses
- Ambulance bills
- Hospitalization expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Pain and suffering
