Savannah Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys

Savannah GA Nursing Home Ratings GraphOur Savannah senior home abuse attorneys have seen a substantial increase in the number of cases involving caregiver home neglect, abuse, and mistreatment throughout Georgia. More than likely, the rising numbers represent only a small portion of the total number of cases of home abuse and mistreatment. Frequently, a resident being abused or neglected chooses to remain quiet in fear knowing that speaking out might cause additional harm. Other times, families are unaware of precisely what measures can be taken to stop unacceptable behavior by home staff members, administrators, supervisors, managers, and other residents.

If your loved one was mistreated, abused, injured, harmed, or died from neglect while residing in a nursing home in Savannah, we can protect your family's rights. Contact the network of Georgia nursing home abuse attorneys (800-926-7565) today to schedule a free case review to discuss filing and resolving a claim for compensation to recover your damages.

Savannah Senior Citizen Demographics

About 15,000 of the more than 140,000 residents living within the Savannah city limits are retirees. This number is even higher when adding all the senior citizens residing within Chatham County communities, including Richmond Hill, Wilmington Island, Tybee Island, Thunderbolt, Isle of Hope, Montgomery, Pooler, Bloomingdale, Port Wentworth, and Garden City. Many of the senior citizens moved to the area decades ago from around the United States to enjoy Savannah's scenic views, access to the Atlantic Ocean, and other nearby amenities.

Unfortunately, the significant rise in the aging population has placed a burden on already crowded nursing facilities throughout Chatham County. Also, there are only a limited number of trained nursing professionals available to meet the demand for open job offers at nursing facilities in the area. Because of a lack of staffing of properly trained registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nursing aides, the employed medical home staff members are tired from working long hours. As a result, the number of cases involving negligence, mistreatment, and abuse has risen substantially in recent years.

The Devastating COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the nursing facility industry in Georgia and South Carolina profoundly, where some of the most vulnerable members of society are fighting hard to win the battle against the viral disease. Many nursing center residents are already struggling with comorbidities, weakened immune systems, or other serious complications that can lead to their death.

Georgia assisted-living facilities are dealing with COVID-19 outbreaks because the virus is extremely contagious. For weeks or months, many of these facilities 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 sanitation procedures have made senior home residents sick with the sars-cov-2 or 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.

What You Can do About Abuse and Neglect

Statistics show that most incidences involving abuse and neglect against the senior citizen typically happen where the elderly individual resides. Many aging adults face the prospect of being abused, mistreated, or neglected while living in their nursing facility. Unfortunately, many family members and friends are unaware that abuse and neglect are occurring until long after the resident has suffered significant harm, injuries, or death.

Identifying the signs of mistreatment early on can prevent additional harm from occurring. The most common types of abuse and neglect, where the nursing home fails involve:

  • Physical abuse in a nursing facility is considered any non-accidental physical injury when force is used against the senior citizen that results in pain, impairment, or wrongful death.
  • Verbal assault usually involves humiliation, threats, ridicule, intimidation, yelling, scapegoating, or habitual blaming.
  • Emotional abuse is often recognized as an assault against the elderly individual's emotions or psyche that causes any level of emotional pain or distress.
  • Falling negligence occurs when the older adult suffers a brain injury, knee injuries, broken bones, or other unexplained fall injuries caused by unwitnessed falls.
  • Exposure to contagious diseases and viruses, including COVID-19.
  • Egregious negligence where home residents suffer serious injuries caused by caregivers or doctors (medical malpractice).
  • Social isolation occurs when home staff members deny residents access to senior services, support groups, and senior companions.
  • Medication mistakes where staff members give the patient the wrong drug, the wrong dosage, or another patient's dangerous drugs.
  • Psychological abuse often occurs when a nursing staff member or other senior resident terrorizes or menaces the elderly individual or causes them to become isolated from friends or activities.
  • Sexual abuse -- Any non-consensual sexual contact that does not need to include actual physical contact or action, but another type of contact that might consist of forcing the elderly to watch pornographic material or sexual acts being conducted by others.
  • HIPAA violation when staff members expose home residents' medical records and personal information in violation of federal laws and privacy policy procedures regulated by federal regulations.
  • Negligence refers to any failure of the staff in charge of providing care in fulfilling their obligations and responsibilities through unintentional or intentional action that denies the senior any necessary assistance, medical care, or treatments.
  • Financial exploitation is any unauthorized use of funds or property belonging to the resident or mismanagement of their funds by those in charge.
  • Wrongful death occurs when the staff fails to provide proper medical care and assistance that causes a change in the patient's medical condition.

If you suspect your loved one has been neglected, abused, exploited, or sexually assaulted, it is crucial to take immediate legal action to remedy the problem. Taking quick action if the nursing home fails might protect your loved one from any further harm, injury, or wrongful death. It is crucial to tell the doctor, administrator, nursing staff, and others in charge exactly what you suspect, witnessed, or observed.

Many families will hire a personal injury attorney who specializes in nursing home abuse cases to serve as their legal advocate. A lawyer can take appropriate actions to notify law enforcement and other authorities and investigate a claim for financial compensation. Legal advice from your personal injury lawyer can advance your monetary compensation case or wrongful death lawsuit.

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
