Pennsylvania Attorney For Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect Victims
People in nursing homes are often our parents and grandparents, those who have sacrificed throughout their lives for us. We owe it to them to make sure that they are treated with dignity and the care they deserve. Too often, however, institutions do not look at them that way. Bed sores, medication mistakes, falls … these are all things that happen when nursing home care is poor.
When we start to investigate a nursing home case, there are some basic things we immediately look at. Was the home properly staffed, i.e., did it have too many patients and not enough workers? How often did they check in on the patient? Were they keeping a watchful eye on them? Did they give the medications that the patient was supposed to get? Those are all important questions, but in the end, the most important question is this: Did they treat the patient with the care and dignity they deserved?
