Nursing Home Residents Deserve Respect and Dignity
When an elderly or infirm person moves into a nursing home, it does not mean their life has come to an end. Residents should be treated with the respect and dignity they have earned after a lifetime of contributing to our society. Unfortunately, many nursing homes hire unqualified staff and do not train them properly on how to handle confusing circumstances without resorting to yelling and verbal abuse. Nursing homes are required to pursue policies that support the dignity of its residents. If your loved one is beginning to complain of emotional abuse, disrespect or is exhibiting symptoms of withdrawal or fear around staff members or other residents, it is possible that he or she is the victim of mental or emotional abuse.
Nobody wants to sue a Nursing Home.
Sometimes a lawsuit that leads to a large settlement or verdict is the only way to make the facility “get it”. Failures that hurt vulnerable residents need to be accounted for. We advocate restoring respect and dignity.
