When you place your loved one in an assisted living facility, it is expected they are in good hands, with professionals who can take better care of them than you can. We see cases of nursing home abuse and neglect that are appalling.
- Wounds festering for days because the facility hasn’t done a proper job turning the patient
- Actual physical abuse of the patient (hitting, shaking, choking, etc)
- Sexual abuse of the client
- Wrongful death
It is hard to put someone you love in the care of another. Is every nursing home abusing clients? Of course not! We hope everyone is being taken care of in a stellar manner. Not bringing consequences on the organizations causing actual harm to clients encourages this to happen to other patients. The system of rules are in place for a reason. Nursing home abuse is similar to daycare abuse, in that our most vulnerable loved ones are being exploited by the actions of another.
If you suspect or are aware of nursing home abuse in Las Vegas, please give us a call. We would love to hear more about your case.
