Protecting Your Loved Ones In Elder Care

As our population ages, senior abuse and nursing home abuse are on the rise. We at Debra L. Broz, Attorneys at Law, PLC, have been fighting to bring justice to victims of elder abuse for years. If your loved one shows any of the following signs of abuse from reckless or negligent actions, act immediately.

  • Untimely or unexplained death
  • Infected bedsores or pressure ulcers
  • Unexpected falls
  • Unexplained injuries like broken bones or sprains, head injuries, bruises, burns, cuts or abrasions
  • Medication errors or overdose
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Unsanitary or unclean conditions

Does your loved one show any agitation, withdrawal or fear; frequent crying; or complaints of poor treatment? These can also be signs of abuse. Families place their trust in nursing homes to provide the care their loved ones need, but nursing homes are often understaffed. As a result certified nurse assistants are required to care for more residents than they can handle. We are prepared to fight for your loved ones to ensure they get the justice they need to recover from their abuse.

Nursing home abuse is underreported according to an ongoing U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Inspector General audit. There is a federal law that requires calling the police when incidents occur, but only about 28% of serious abuse cases are reported by nursing homes. The full report is due out in 2018.
