How to Detect Nursing Home Abuse

Our Parkersburg nursing injury attorneys recognize that nursing home staff members have good intentions in most of the cases we see, but the facility’s resources or policies may result in abuse, neglect or negligence. It is the responsibility of nursing homes to provide the care that they promise and to take reasonable steps to ensure that every patient is safe and happy. One of the most common questions we receive is how to determine whether subpar treatment can be classified as abuse and when to seek legal representation.

If you notice that your loved one experiences a sudden or rapid change in mood, appearance and health, it is completely reasonable for you to demand answers and conduct an investigation. Symptoms to be aware of include sudden weight loss, bouts of anger or depression, physical signs of abuse or neglect, the development of bedsores or hospitalization due to infection or medication errors. If you have any doubts at all about the quality of care your loved one is receiving, we will be happy to review the details of your case and let you know if legal action is warranted.

★★★★★
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
