ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY / NURSING HOME ABUSE

Many older people who are unable to live alone live in assisted living facilities or nursing homes.

Federal and State laws regulate nursing homes, reducing unsafe conditions for the residents. However assisted living facilities are largely unregulated.

Diane Rehm recently discussed this issue on her radio program. You can listen to the show at: Assisted Living Facilities And Standards Of Care

Tragically, intentional and negligent abuse occurs against the elderly living in both nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

A personal injury attorney can help a person in this situation when abuse occurred as a result of the facility's negligent, reckless, or intentional behavior.

Injury to a resident can occur as a result of:

- unsafe conditions such as wet floors or staircases

- overuse of chemical or physical restraints

- lack of background checks for employees

- lack of training / supervision of employees

- misdiagnosis

- lack of prosper nursing / follow-up care

- criminal behavior such as battery, sexual assault, fraud, and theft
