Davenport Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Davenport Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

The Davenport nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC believe that one of the best ways we can promote change in the quality of treatment seniors receive in the nursing industry is to inform the public of all the facilities guilty of falling short of their duty of care. Medicare tracks and rates every nursing facility in the nation so that their transgressions are public record for anyone to see, but most people are unaware that this information is offered. We’ve used the data to provide you with a list of poor nursing homes in your area so that you can avoid the homes that have a history of ignoring patient rights in favor of profits.

Davenport Senior Demographics

Davenport is the largest of the quad cities and also the third largest city in all of Iowa. It has been experiencing steady growth primarily due to the fact that it is rated as one of the least expensive places to live in the country while having proximity to Chicago, Des Moines and Milwaukee. The city has a strong manufacturing presence and John Deere is one of its top employers, with its world headquarters located in Davenport’s sister city, Moline.

Seniors make up 12.6% of Davenport’s 102,500 citizens and there are many more residents who are preparing to retire in the coming years. The Center for Active Seniors provides seniors with all of the resources and programs they need to live as active and healthy as possible while connecting with others who share their interests. These programs include trips, senior advocacy, a nutrition program, social activities, fitness programs and intergenerational activities.

How to Recognize Abuse or Neglect

Some symptoms of abuse are obvious while other people concerned that their loved ones are being mistreated simply notice small changes that indicate things aren’t right. Our Davenport nursing injury lawyers are always available to help you determine whether your concerns warrant a deeper investigation. The following are the most common indicators that you may want to obtain legal advice on how to proceed.

  • Your loved one shows physical symptoms of abuse or neglect, such as bruises, weight loss or bedsores.
  • Your loved one’s behavior changes suddenly without a legitimate explanation. Many nursing homes will write off the changes as symptoms of senility or dementia, but you know your loved one better than they do and should investigate if he or she is suddenly silent in the presence of caregivers, experiencing bouts of anger or depression or accusing staff members of verbal or physical abuse.
  • Your loved one is hospitalized due to medication errors, a fall or any other condition which could suggest he or she was not properly supervised or attended to.
  • Your loved one experiences a sudden and rapid decline in his or her health without a valid explanation.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
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
