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 LLP 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. 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.
Nursing homes are paid to protect and care for the weak and vulnerable. As Nursing Home Neglience Lawyers, Crossen Kooi LLP helps victims and their families ensure this is done. When it is not, Crossen Kooi LLP helps victims recover compensation for nursing home neglect and abuse and hold these facilities accountable. Our Nursing Home Injury Attorneys believe that holding nursing homes accountable for their conduct is important, and we will do everything we can to expose a nursing home’s neglect and compensate your loved one.
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.
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.
