Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing home neglect is a painful and heartbreaking betrayal of trust. You trusted your loved ones to the care of others, only to find the nursing home didn’t do its job – and now your loved one has suffered.

It’s not right, and you shouldn’t have to stand for it. If you need compensation for your loved one for any and all nursing home negligence-related issues, I will fight for you.

As the population of elderly people has increased, the nursing home and assisted living industry continues to overbuild, creating competition among owners to fill beds and make cuts to make profits. The people hurt when this happens are you and your loved ones.

Abuse and neglect can happen to any resident, but most often happens to the voiceless, those residents who lack the physical or mental ability to voice any complaints to family, friends or nursing care staff. Signs of physical abuse include:

  • Unexplained bruising
  • Skin tears or damage
  • Fractures and other similar types of unexplained or unusual injuries

Nursing home neglect occurs when the nursing home staff fails to provide care necessary to keep the resident safe from physical harm, including:

  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Injuries from the use of restraints
  • Injuries from the resident wandering away from the facility due to improper supervision
  • Injuries from neglect by the nursing staff that often result in falls and fractures, and can ultimately lead to death

Additionally, assisted living facilities in Oklahoma are prohibited by regulation from accepting or keeping residents who need more care and supervision than their facility can provide. If assisted living facilities violate those regulations and the resident becomes injured, the facility may be responsible.
