New Haven Senior Demographics

New Haven is the home of Yale University, and the college is the city’s largest employer and source of tax revenue ahead of numerous health, biotech and financial services firms. Other professional services support the economy such as marketing, legal services, engineering and architecture. While Yale does draw many younger residents to New Haven, the senior population still represents over 9.2% of its 130,000 citizens.

There are three senior centers located throughout the city which serve the needs of residents over the age of 55. The programs offered include social activities, classes and assistance programs for those who wish to maintain active lifestyles but lack the resources to be able to do so. Transportation assistance and daily meal programs are the most vital of these services as they can offset or delay the need for seniors to depend on nursing care.

New Haven Nursing Homes

It is with regret that our New Haven nursing injury lawyers feel the need to publish negative information about businesses that should be expected to live up to their promises of delivering quality care. One of the most effective weapons we have in our arsenal to combat the epidemic of poor nursing care sweeping the nation is the ability to choose where we spend our money, however, and by highlighting facilities that have histories of delivering subpar care, we believe we can help protect your loved ones and force change at the same time.

All of the information we used to create this use is available on Medicare’s website through the nursing home compare tool. Since we’ve focused solely on the worst rated homes, you may wish to use the tool to find homes that have received accolades when determining who should care for your loved ones. The tool is available at https://www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare.

Common Nursing Home Injuries

In addition to helping the families of those mistreated by their caregivers, our New Haven nursing injury lawyers help many people determine whether what their loved ones have gone through qualifies as negligence or abuse. Many of our clients were apprehensive about taking legal action simply because they didn’t know whether their loved ones’ injuries were serious enough to warrant legal action. We can assure you that we will take all claims with the utmost seriousness and can help you if your loved one has been victim of any of the following.

  • Pressure ulcers, which are commonly referred to as bedsores. Certain patients are at greater risk of developing these sores, but prevention and treatment is very simple. If a patient is allowed to develop late stage bedsores, it is often due to neglect and these painful sores can become infected or cause septic shock leading to death.
  • Medication errors that result in severe complications or death. It is alarming just how common prescription and medication administration errors have become. Most errors only result in minor discomfort, but they have the potential to cause serious harm such as when a medication error causes uncontrolled bleeding, heart failure or stroke.
  • Physical or sexual abuse. Whether the perpetrator is another guest, a resident living in the same facility or a staff member, there is no excuse that this type of behavior should occur on the watch of any nursing facility. Proper security needs to be in place to protect patients.
  • Trips, slips or falls due to lack of supervision or the presence of clutter and objects in commonly trafficked areas. Fall prevention needs to be taken seriously in nursing care and measures which need to be taken include assessing patients who are at a greater risk of falls and making sure that the environment itself does not pose a hazard.
