Hagerstown Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys

Hagerstown Maryland Nursing Home Ratings GraphMore than eight million Americans currently receive long and short-term care services in nursing facilities, adult day care centers, assisted-living homes, and hospices nationwide. For-profit corporations run nearly all the facilities providing nursing care in the United States. Often, their business plan means the company entrusts the staff to provide nurturing health and hygiene care to our most vulnerable. Unfortunately, the corporation’s stockholders want assurance that profits are placed ahead of the residents’ needs. In recent years, the Hagerstown nursing home abuse attorneys at Nursing Home Law Center LLC have seen a significant shift in the escalating number of civil cases involving mistreatment, neglect, and abuse throughout Maryland.

Medicare releases publicly available information every month on all nursing homes in Hagerstown based on the data gathered through inspections, investigations, and surveys. Currently, the database shows that inspectors identified serious violations and deficiencies at 44% (seven facilities) of the sixteen Hagerstown nursing homes that resulted in severe harm and wrongful death of residents. If your loved one was injured, abused, mistreated, or died unexpectedly from neglect while living in a nursing facility in Maryland, you have the legal right to ensure justice. We urge you to contact the Hagerstown nursing home abuse & neglect lawyers at Nursing Home Law Center (800-926-7565) today to schedule a free, no-obligation case review to discuss a financial compensation lawsuit.

Nearly 150,000 individuals reside in Hagerstown and Washington County, including more than 21,000 senior citizens. The limited number of nursing facilities and the high percentage of the elderly population in the community has placed a severe demand on the number of beds required to meet the needs of the disabled, rehabilitating, and aging. Sadly, abuse, neglect, and mistreatment are usually the results of overworked nursing staff in a crowded environment.

We recognize any failure to follow protocols when providing care and services could place the health and well-being of the resident in Immediate Jeopardy. The deficient practice of the nursing staff directly violates federal and state guidelines and regulations and fails to follow the established protocols and procedures adopted by the facility.

A Lack of Quality Care Can Injure or Harm a Resident

The federal government reports that more than 9000 incidences of documented abuse occurred in nursing homes nationwide within the last two years. These violations resulted in more than one out of every three nursing facilities cited for severe problems. These reports indicate that a lack of quality care has caused significant harm or injury to the residents in various ways, including:

  • Untreated pressure sores
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Substandard medical care
  • Physical, sexual, emotional and mental abuse
  • Inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene
  • Preventable accidents

In many of those cases, the nursing home resident suffered actual harm at a level of seriousness that caused them immediate jeopardy, leading to a worsening condition or death.

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
