Our legal team is here to help
If you believe that your loved one has suffered nursing home abuse or neglect, the lawyers at McDivitt Law Firm can help. Identifying signs of nursing home abuse or neglect in a loved one is crucial for ensuring their safety and well-being. While these signs may not always indicate abuse, they should raise concerns and prompt further investigation. If you suspect abuse or neglect, it’s important to take appropriate action, which may include contacting the authorities or seeking legal advice.
It’s important to trust your instincts and take action if you notice any of these signs or if your loved one expresses concerns about their care. Document incidents, take photographs if necessary, and report your suspicions to the nursing home administration, and, if needed, local law enforcement or adult protective services. Additionally, consult with an attorney who specializes in elder abuse cases to explore legal options if abuse or neglect is confirmed.
Below is a list of signs to watch for when visiting a relative or loved one in an elder care facility. When you complete this form, a member of our legal team will contact you to learn more about your circumstances and see how we may be able to provide you assistance.
