Children In Day Care Are Susceptible To Many Of The Same Problems Our Elderly Nursing Home Patients Encounter

Picture-910Despite differences in the number of candles on their birthday cake, children and the elderly have far more similarities than differences.  Our eldest and most junior members of society are particularly susceptible to abuse and mistreatment due to negligent or suspect care provided by caregivers.

As a personal injury lawyer, I have been fortunate to represent children who have suffered an injury in a day care setting due to the negligent or abusive actions of a caregiver and can attest to the fact that many of the same underlying principals that result in nursing home injuries similarly result in mistreatment or injuries in a day care setting: poor training, under-staffing, desire of management to maximize profits over quality of care.

Perhaps due to the fact that I am a proud father of a toddler boy, I feel like I can sincerely appreciate the frustration and — downright anger– parents experience when their child is mistreated at a day care center.

Over the next few weeks, I plan on discussing more about day care center liability, as I believe children– like their elderly counterparts– deserve a voice of advocacy.

    great idea .this provide good information about what a day program can provide persons with a dementia such as Alzheimer’s and their care partner.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

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
