Nursing Home Abuse

Abuse at Private Pay Facilities

Marietta Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Whether nursing home patients are paying via insurance, Medicaid, or out-of-pocket, they are entitled to the same standard of care under the eyes of the law. Nursing home abuse is a serious problem nationwide, and it’s important to understand your elderly loved one’s rights, regardless of the payment method used for their care.

Residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities are dependent on caretakers for food, hygiene, and proper medical care. This makes them very vulnerable to potential abuse or neglect. Even if the intent is not malicious, neglecting a patient’s health and wellness can result in serious or potentially fatal conditions.

Learn to Look for the Signs of Abuse

Patient abuse or neglect is unacceptable and illegal, regardless of whether the resident is paying for their care via insurance, Medicaid, or from their own savings. Especially at private pay facilities, you may expect that your loved one will receive the high level of care they deserve. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Any of the following signs can indicate potential nursing home abuse or neglect. If you spot any of these signs, it’s vital to investigate further to protect your loved ones.

Common signs of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Any injury sustained in a fall
  • Bedsores or pressure blisters
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Untreated infections

Beyond these physical indicators, a sudden or uncharacteristic change in behavior or emotions can also suggest abuse or neglect. Since these conditions can also exist for other reasons, it’s important to have an experienced attorney help investigate the matter and determine if abuse or neglect is occurring.
