Mount Pleasant Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys
Mount Pleasant is a rapidly growing suburb of Charleston and the fourth largest city in South Carolina. Its population includes thousands of seniors who require ongoing care and assistance.
The South Carolina nursing home neglect attorneys of Nursing Home Law Center LLC fight tirelessly to ensure that they receive the quality of care and respect they've earned. We've compiled all the information you need to make more educated decisions on where to place your loved ones below to raise awareness toward common nursing home concerns and help prevent future abuse and neglect.
We currently represent injured elderly people exposed to sars-cov-2 or the COVID-19 (Corona) virus affected by the advance pandemic that started in early 2020.
South Carolina Senior Demographics
During the 1990s, Mount Pleasant was the fastest growing city in the state, when its population doubled between 1990 and 2000. As of the last census, its population had reached 67,800, and estimates place its current population at close to 78,000. Roughly 12% of the city's total population is over the age of 65, and many more residents are rapidly approaching retirement age. To help seniors continue to live active and healthy lives, the Mount Pleasant Recreation Department provides numerous services through its senior center located at 840 Von Kolnitz Road.
The senior center programs are available to anyone older than 55 years of age. They include driving courses, exercise classes, group trips and games, dances and concerts, art classes, computer classes, billiards, and massage therapy. Charleston County residents can become members for a nominal yearly fee of $125 while out of county residents can obtain a membership for $250 per year.
The Devastating COVID-19 Pandemic
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) said that the COVID-19 pandemic is hitting the nursing facility industry profoundly, where some of the most vulnerable members of society are fighting hard to win the battle against the viral disease. Many senior home residents are already struggling with comorbidities, weakened immune systems, or other serious complications that can lead to their death.
Many South Carolina assisted-living facilities 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.

When to Seek Legal Advice When Suspecting Abuse
Our eastern South Carolina elder abuse injury lawyers are often asked when it is best to seek legal representation when suspecting mistreatment or neglect. The short answer is to speak with a lawyer the moment you suspect that something is not right. We can help you determine whether you have a reason for concern and help you relocate your loved one to a healthier environment. Some of the primary symptoms of nursing abuse and neglect that you should pay attention to include the following.The development of pressure ulcers or the worsening of existing sores. All nursing facilities should have personalized plans for their patients that include proper care provisions for those at risk of developing these injuries (possible medical malpractice). Prevention and treatment are simple and require moving the patient every two to three hours.
- Hospitalization for suspect 'elder abuse' reasons such as malnutrition , dehydration, a mysterious infection, or medication errors.
- The presence of physical marks that might indicate the senior citizen has been restrained or physically assaulted.
- Caregivers steal the patient's personal belongings, funds, or medication (financial exploitation).
- The staff members or senior home administrators deny nursing home residents access to senior services, support groups, and senior companions.
- Sudden changes in the senior citizen's behavior such as depression, irritability, and sudden outbursts of anger.
- Home residents suffer physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, psychological abuse, or other injury types by unsupervised home abuse of other patients.
- Slips or falls that occur when your loved one is unsupervised (home neglect) that result in hip and knee injuries, brain injuries, or another physical injury. Every long-term care facility needs to have a fall prevention program in place and identify the needs of patients that are more likely to fall or require regular assistance.
