Tampa Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer

Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Neglect and abuse in nursing homes occurs more often than one would like to think. It is estimated that one in three nursing homes is guilty of abuse and/or neglect due to negligent practices of overcrowding, understaffing and untrained caregivers. Nursing home neglect takes many forms and can lead to injury and illness in the elderly patients whose care is trusted to these long-term healthcare facilities.

Nursing homes have a duty and obligation to their patients to provide full-time care and medical treatment to those who cannot take care of themselves. When they fail to do this, elder neglect and elder abuse occur. A Tampa personal injury lawyer is needed who can fight for the rights of the elderly in the care of these facilities – to help get compensation for the injuries and pain suffered and to help make better conditions for other people in similar situations.

Common Types of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Nursing home neglect and abuse can occur in a number of ways:

  • Failure to provide proper medical treatment
  • Poor nutrition and poor diet
  • Sexual abuse
  • Psychological abuse
  • Unneeded restraints
  • Improper medication or unnecessary medication
  • Unnecessary confinement
  • Physical abuse
  • Pressure sores
