Nursing Home Abuse and Nursing Home Negligence is a disturbing and quickly
growing problem in our country. The Nursing Home Injury Lawyers at Crossen
Kooi handle these cases for victims and their families with the passion
and conviction they deserve. Nursing homes are paid handsomely to provide
a safe and secure environment for all of their residents. In accepting
this money, there are a number of federal and state laws which obligate
nursing homes to protect their vulnerable patients.
Nursing Home Injuries come in variety of forms ranging from physical to
psychological, cognitive, or financial. In most cases nursing home injuries
are preventable through proper training, precautions and appropriate attention
by employees. When medical professionals working in these facilities neglect
elderly patients, such neglect can lead to severe injuries or in some
cases, death. Injuries can vary, and may include an unassisted fall, bed
sores, skin ulcers, assaults, amputations or other negligence or abuse.
Holding Care Providers Liable for Negligence and Abuse
Nursing homes are paid to protect and care for the weak and vulnerable.

facilities accountable. Our Nursing Home Injury Attorneys believe that
holding nursing homes accountable for their conduct is important, and

Nursing home employees and the facilities that hire them have a duty to
provide the appropriate standard of medical care and see that their patients
have the quality of life expected in their facility. When nursing home
employees neglect these duties and cause injury to their patients, they
or the facility that employs them can be held liable for the resulting harm.
Abuse in America’s Nursing homes is, unfortunately, becoming more
and more prevalent. In fact, a recent article publish by a National Newspaper
identified that nearly half of all nursing home patients will have injuries
or illness go unreported, untreated or undiagnosed during their tenure
as a nursing home resident.
