Denver Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys - Part 1

Denver Co Nursing Home Ratings GraphOur Denver senior home abuse & neglect attorneys have seen a significant rise in the number of cases involving senior home abuse and neglect throughout central Colorado. These reports likely represent only a tiny number of abuse and neglect incidences occurring in nursing facilities. Many victims or family members fail to report physical abuse and mistreatment by the home staff or harm caused by other residents in the long-term care facility. After all, they fear retaliation or do not understand what to do.

Medicare regularly collects information on every nursing facility in Denver, Colorado, based on data gathered through inspections, surveys, and investigations. According to the federal agency, currently, forty-seven (29%) of these 161 Denver area nursing facilities were found to have severe deficiencies and violations involving a lack of proper care to their home residents.

The Devastating COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the nursing facility industry profoundly, where some of the most vulnerable elderly residents are fighting hard to win the battle against the viral disease. Many nursing center residents are already struggling with advanced comorbidities, weakened immune systems, or other serious complications that can lead to their death. Some severe injuries and preventable deaths result in a medical malpractice case and wrongful death lawsuit.

Many assisted-living facilities in Colorado are dealing with COVID-19 outbreaks because the virus is extremely contagious. For weeks or months, many of these centers lacked efficient screening of employees, nurses, family members, and visitors, who might have unknowingly brought the viral disease into the home.

The home’s lack of protective protocols and their workers’ failure to follow effective United States sanitation procedures have made elder home residents sick with the COVID-19 virus. If your loved one contracted the coronavirus or was exposed to COVID-19, negligence might have played a role in their crippling illness. If your family member developed a life-threatening injury or died as a result of coronavirus, your family deserves justice through a physical injury suit or wrongful death claim.

Denver Area Senior Community Demographics

Nearly 81,000 (12.7 percent) of the 635,000 residents living within the Denver city limits are senior citizens. The number of elders is even higher when accounting for the surrounding area, including Aurora, Centennial, Glendale, Thornton, and the cities in Northeast Jefferson County. Many are attracted to the area because of its amenities, beautiful climate, and access to some of the best skiing in the Rocky Mountains.

However, the increasing population of retirees has placed a significant demand in many nursing facilities in the Denver area. The overcrowded conditions at many assisted-living homes, nursing facilities, and rehabilitation centers have caused significant problems for Administrators who are challenged to find the numbers of registered nurses, nurses’ aides, certified nursing assistants and licensed practical nurses to meet the needs of every resident in their facility. As a result, many nursing homes have seen a sharp increase in cases involving abuse, neglect, and mistreatment.

★★★★★
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
