Redding Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys
California nursing facilities have a special duty to provide every older adult with acceptable standards of care as regulated and enforced by state and federal nursing industry regulatory agencies. These enforceable laws are designed to provide the most vulnerable members of society quality care in a safe environment.
The network of California nursing home abuse attorneys have handled cases of nursing home abuse and neglect involving mental, physical, and emotional maltreatment. We are currently representing injured victims exposed to sars-cov-2 or the COVID-19 (Corona) virus affected by the pandemic that started in the United States in early 2020.

Currently, their database reveals that nine (53%) of the twenty-one Redding area nursing facilities are deemed to provide substandard care based on national averages after investigators found serious deficiencies and violations.

An Aging Population
There is been a significant rise in the aging population throughout Northern California in recent decades. Nearly 220,000 residents live within the boundaries of Redding and Tehama counties, including in both Red Bluff and Redding, where approximately 30,000 are seniors 65 years and older. Many more elders than ever before have reached the retirement years and decided to stay in the beautiful environment of Central Valley with access to Shasta Lake and the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.
The increasing numbers of the aging population have placed a burden on nursing facilities that are already overcrowded and understaffed. As a result, many more cases involving neglect and abuse have been identified by state and federal agencies performing unannounced inspections and scheduled surveys of nursing facilities throughout California.
Redding Nursing Home Resident Health Concerns
Our Central Valley elder abuse law firm recognizes that placing a loved one in a nursing facility is often one of life’s most undesirable decisions. Even though neglect and abuse of senior citizens can occur even in the best nursing facilities, many nursing centers have ongoing patterns of accident hazards, safety concerns, and signs of the deteriorating health of their residents.
Our Redding nursing center neglect attorneys have served as legal advocates for nursing home residents statewide. To offer assistance to families, we continuously compiled lists of nursing facilities with serious problems, including opened investigations, filed complaints, health hazards, and safety concerns. We gather this information through numerous national databases, including Medicare.gov.

Nursing Home Negligence
Many families have a loving spouse, grandparent, or parent in a long-term care facility who is placed there to ensure they received the highest level of care. Often, the nursing facility provides every necessary resource, medical attention, and support. Unfortunately, when the resident is abused, ignored, or neglected, the consequences are devastating.
In many incidences, family members or friends are unaware that their loved one is suffering at the hands of their caregivers because the signs or indicators of mistreatment are not visible. Our California elder abuse network of attorneys has recognized ongoing patterns of abuse and neglect in the cases we file for financial compensation. The most common cases involve:
- Facility acquired pressure ulcers that could have been prevented with quick detection and subsequent quality skincare by competent caregivers,
- Unexplained broken bones, bruises, lacerations, burns, and cuts,
- Choking events and severe dehydration,
- Significant weight gain or weight loss due to a change in the medical condition or from malnutrition,
- Sexual abuse, psychological games, or other type of elder abuse,
- Exposure to life-threatening viruses including COVID-19 (Corona),
- Unsanitary conditions and poor hygiene,
- Social isolation where staff members deny residents access to a senior companion, religious services, home events and parties, and senior services that result in emotional abuse and home neglect,
- Drug errors,
- Wrongful death or another type of elder abuse
Many nursing home residents in the state of California are the victims of pinching, hitting, arm-twisting, physical assault , and sexual abuse. The most common type of physical abuse often involves a failure to provide the most basic human care. Some nursing residents are left alone for hours at a time, unable to move without the assistance of their essential needs, including toileting, bathing, drinking, eating, or dressing.
Many of the issues listed above can be severe or fatal if immediate action is not taken by competent staff or legal intervention by a nursing home abuse lawyer. Pressure ulcers are often thought of as nothing more than a mild inconvenience. However, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services state that all pressure ulcers are preventable if every staff member follows state and federal regulations.
Severe infections can degrade quickly to bloodstream infection (septicemia) or bone infection (osteomyelitis) without immediate intervention. These deadly infections can claim the life of the victim within days.
