The Dangers of Nursing Homes for Residents
While there are nursing homes that provide quality care for their residents, the sad truth is not every facility or staff member is compassionate and caring. There are a number of ways in which residents can be mistreated. Physical harm toward elders such as beatings certainly occur, but most harm arises in less overt ways. Nursing home can also cause serious harm residents through neglect. Dropping a resident or transferring them from the bed to a wheelchair in a rough manner can cause broken bones which can prove fatal to the elderly. Seniors are particularly vulnerable to devastating neglect because they often have no voice to speak out against mistreatment. It may be because they have difficulty verbally communicating, or they have been threatened into silence, or they do not wish to worry their family. However, neglect can be just as devastating physically and emotionally to a resident as beatings. Here are some examples of this that our nursing home neglect lawyers in NJ are very familiar with:
