Tucson Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys

Tucson, AZ Nursing Home Ratings GraphEntrusting the care of a loved one to medical personnel in a nursing facility is never an easy decision. Often, assurances given by the administrator or an admissions team at the nursing home to family members regarding the level of care is misleading. In many incidences, the elderly, infirmed, or disabled individual suffers serious harm before the family is ever made aware that a problem exists. The Tucson nursing home abuse & neglect attorneys at Nursing Home Law Center LLC have seen a significant rise in the number of civil cases filed against nursing staff and administrators involving mistreatment, abuse, and neglect.

Every month, Medicare collects data on all nursing facilities in Tucson, based on information gathered through investigations, surveys, and inspections. Currently, the federal database reveals that six (24%) of the twenty-five Tucson nursing homes have been identified by inspectors to have severe violations and deficiencies that led to substandard care. If your loved one was harmed, injured, abused, mistreated, or died unexpectedly while living in a nursing facility in Southern Arizona, your family has legal rights. Contact us today at 800-926-7565 to schedule a free, no-obligation case evaluation to discuss a financial compensation lawsuit.

Approximately one million residents live within the borders of Pima and Cochise counties, of which more than 160,000 are senior citizens 65 years and older.

Is Your Loved One Suffering Because of Negligence or Abuse?

Many nursing home residents in Arizona become victims of understaffing, lack of supervision, improper training, outright wrongdoing, or another form of mistreatment. It may be that your loved one has been injured, abused, or neglected because the signs and symptoms are not always visible and challenging to identify. The most common forms of abuse and neglect in nursing facilities and assisted living centers can involve:

  • Facility Acquired Bedsores – Often described as decubitus ulcers, pressure ulcers, pressure wounds, or pressure sores, bedsores acquired after being admitted to the facility are usually signs of neglect through malnutrition, dehydration or a failure to assist a resident who requires repositioning or movement due to being bedridden or wheelchair-bound.
  • Falling Accidents – Nursing facilities are required to assess every resident for the potential risk of experiencing a fall at the center. Many of the most severe accidents that occur in nursing homes are the result of falling due to a hazardous environment, slippery surface, or lack of assistance/supervision when required.
  • Lack of Medical Attention – Failing to follow physician’s orders, provide adequate treatment or medication mistakes often lead to preventable serious injuries or death of the resident.

★★★★★
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
