Fort Collins Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys - Part 1

Fort Collins Co Nursing Home Ratings GraphOur Fort Collins nursing home abuse & neglect attorneys have witnessed an increase in the number of criminal and civil home abuse cases occurring in nursing homes throughout Colorado. Most likely, the vast majority of all cases involving home neglect and abuse go unreported. Many victims either do not know what to do to stop the abuse or live in fear of retaliation by the senior home staff in charge of providing them care. Other times, family members do not know what steps to take to stop the unacceptable behavior before it causes their loved one additional harm.

Medicare routinely releases time-sensitive information throughout the year on all nursing facilities in Fort Collins, based on inspections, surveys, and investigations. Currently, the federal database reveals that forty (28%) of the 142 Fort Collins nursing homes were identified by investigators as having severe deficiencies and violations that led to resident home abuse.

The Devastating COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the long-term care facility industry profoundly, where some of the most vulnerable members of society are fighting hard to win the battle against the viral disease. Many elderly 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 nursing home abuse lawsuit and wrongful death case.

Most assisted-living facilities in Colorado are dealing with COVID-19 outbreaks because the virus is extremely contagious. For weeks or months, many senior home administrators 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, senior home 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.

Was your loved one injured, abused, mistreated, or did they die unexpectedly from neglect while residing in a nursing care facility in Colorado? If so, your family has legal rights. Contact the Fort Collins nursing home abuse & neglect lawyers at Nursing Home Law Center (800-926-7565) today. We can schedule a free, no-obligation case review to discuss a monetary recovery claim to ensure you are compensated for your damages. Most suits are settled out of court through a negotiated agreement with the facility’s insurance company.

Fort Collins Senior Community Demographics

Nearly 150,000 residents live within the Fort Collins city limits, and almost 20,000 of those individuals are senior citizens. That number rises even higher when counting all the retirees in Larimer County, especially those residing in Loveland, Rustic, Drake, Buckeye, Estes Park, Wellington, Laporte, Livermore, Norfolk, Kinikinik, Berthoud, Old Roach, and Glen Haven. Many retirees moved to this area years ago because of its beautiful surroundings and quick access to Roosevelt National Forest and Rocky Mountain National Park.

However, the significant rise of the aging population throughout north-central Colorado has placed a significant burden on nursing facilities. Additionally, there is a lack of skilled registered nurses, nurses’ aides, and licensed practical nurses in the community who are available to fill many open medical job positions. Due to the overcrowded conditions and a lack of proper staffing, many nursing homes are facing a substantial rise in incidences involving abuse and neglect.

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
