Chula Vista Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys

Chula Vista, CA Nursing Home Ratings GraphThe population of baby boomers living in the southern California area reaching their retirement years has been increasing for years. As a response, the nursing home industry has continued to overbuild many new facilities in anticipation of providing care and services to the elderly. Unfortunately, this rapid expansion has created a competitive market where large and small business administrators go to great lengths to fill their beds, including cutting back on the quality of care provided to ensure higher profits.

The network of California nursing home abuse attorneys have seen a significant rise in the number of cases involving caregiving mistreatment and abuse at government-run homes, for-profit centers, and private non-profits. We are currently representing injured victims exposed to sars-cov-2 or the COVID-19 (Corona) virus affected by the pandemic that started in early 2020.

Retiring in Southern California

More than 250,000 residents live within San Diego County, including in Chula Vista, California. Out of that number, there are approximately 30,000 seniors who have reached their retirement years. Many elders have chosen to stay in Southern California to enjoy the beautiful environment, access to the Pacific Coast, and enjoy all of the abundant amenities only found in the San Diego area. However, the aging population has placed a significant demand on the number of skilled nurses and medical doctors needed to provide quality care in the last stages of life as caregiving home residents.

Many times, families have no other choice but to place a loved one in a caregiving home to ensure they receive the best quality care possible. Caregivers are required to follow harm reduction policies and procedures. Unfortunately, incidents of harm, mistreatment , and abuse can happen to any nursing facility elder. However, the injury is most likely to occur to a resident that does not have the mental or physical capacity to voice complaints to nursing staff, family, or friends.

Medicare Ranking

To maintain public health, Medicare compiles data throughout the year on all nursing facilities throughout the United States, including in Southern California, to ensure all facilities are following rules and regulations. The federal agency found that six (11%) of the fifty-six southern California area seniors homes provide their elder residents substandard care after inspectors identified serious deficiencies and violations.

If your loved one was mistreated, abused, harmed, or died unexpectedly from mistreatment while living in a nursing center in Southern California, our law firm can protect your rights starting today. Contact the Chula Vista nursing abuse lawyers at Nursing Home Law Center (800-926-7565) to schedule a free case review to discuss filing a claim for compensation to recover your damages.

Under California law, caregiving home abuse and mistreatment are recognized as negligent or intentional infliction of injury, intimidation, or confinement that results in mental or physical harm. Social isolation is also considered abuse when preventing an elder from engaging with friends or participating in a support group or denying access to religious services.

Southern California Caregiver Home Health Concerns

Residential care facilities are prohibited by state and federal regulations from admitting and keeping residents in the home who require more care, treatment, and supervision than the caregivers can provide. Any violation of those regulations that results in the resident suffering from serious injuries or wrongful death could leave the facility, administrator, and nursing staff legally liable.

Our California elder abuse attorneys are ready to take legal action as legal advocates for every nursing facility resident in the state. To help families, our team of lawyers continuously review, evaluate, and assess the information gathered through national databases, including Medicare.gov. This information reveals specific details of opened investigations, filed complaints, health concerns, and safety hazards in every assisted living facility statewide. Our abuse and accident attorneys post the publicly available information to allow families to make an informed decision of where their loved one can receive the highest standards of care.

Signs and Symptoms of Physical Abuse and Neglect

In many situations, family members are unaware of precisely what is happening to their loved one in a nursing facility because they are unaware of how to detect the physical signs and symptoms of abuse or injury. Some signs and symptoms that physical abuse is occurring in a loved one might involve:

  • Unexplained bruising
  • Detectable signs of burning, choking or beating
  • A broken bone, hip fracture, and brain injury
  • Skin tears
  • Exposure to the COVID-19 (Corona) Virus
  • Sexual abuse
  • Indicators of verbal intimidation or harassment
  • Forced nudity or sexual battery
  • Open wounds or bedsores acquired at the facility after admission
  • A lack of equipment maintenance
  • Nurses and doctors who falsify records
  • Injuries caused by staff not following harm reduction policies
  • A delay in diagnosis or medical treatment
  • Drug use errors including giving the resident the wrong medication or giving the drug to the wrong resident
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Injuries caused by physical/chemical restraint
  • Residents who elope or wander away from the facility
  • Falls that occur due to a lack of supervision

In many cases, residents become victims of mistreatment because their condition was improperly assessed or evaluated by the nursing staff/medical director. Without proper treatment could ultimately lead to their death.

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
