What to Do When Your Loved One Has Been Abused or Neglected

No one wants to put their loved one into a nursing home. Unfortunately, most people don’t have the resources to care for their loved ones at home.

The best nursing homes provide caring, compassionate service to the elderly. They also provide peace of mind to families who know their loved one is in good hands.

During such a difficult time for your family, nursing homes should be institutions you can trust. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case.

It’s devastating to learn that the home you placed your loved one in has abused or neglected them. Let Hensley Legal Group help make things right.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Manifests in Many Ways

Perhaps nursing home abuse is the type of harm you’ve heard horror stories about: staff yelling at residents, hitting them, or even sexually abusing them. Nursing home abuse isn’t exclusive to staff; other residents can abuse one another as well.

Nursing home neglect, though just as harmful, can fly under the radar. Moving residents frequently, feeding them, providing them with enough fluids – these are the everyday actions that, if left undone, can seriously harm residents. This is nursing home neglect.

Nursing home abuse and neglect can result in:

  • Bedsores
  • Malnutrition
  • Broken bones
  • Dehydration
  • Death

No one, least of all our elderly loved ones, should have to suffer from these symptoms. They should instead receive the medical care and personal attention they deserve.

  • Right to freedom from abuse, neglect, and exploitation
  • Right to know about services and financial charges
  • Right to take part in planning their care and treatment
  • Right to refuse treatment
  • Right to confidentiality of records
  • Right to privacy
  • Right to control their finances
  • Right to freedom from chemical and physical restraints
  • Right to express grievances without fear of retaliation
  • Right to communicate freely with persons of their choice
  • Rights regarding admissions, transfers, and discharges, including the right to appeal
  • Right to know and exercise their rights

These rights exist to protect our elderly loved ones from nursing home abuse and neglect in the first place. Unfortunately, some nursing homes violate these rights.

When your loved one’s rights are violated, it’s time to call an Indiana personal injury attorney.

As an accident victim and single father in dire need of help and at the end of my rope, somehow a gentleman named Jonathan contacted me today about my accident, and within few minutes of our conversation he had calmed me down from a 10 to a 5 and took a load of stress, anger, fear, anxiety, depression and being lost off me 50% and helped me see light at end of a dark tunnel. Thank you Jonathan.

I have to say that I am very pleased with how Hensley handled my case. They were really quick about getting on my case and getting me a settlement. They didn't delay at all. My car accident lawyer, Phil, was amazing. He got me everything I deserved. I've already recommended Hensley to a friend who needed a good car accident attorney. I recommend that you call them, ESPECIALLY if the insurance is giving you a hard time like they tried to do to me.

I was in an accident involving three totaled vehicles and ultimately one fatality. I’d never been in a situation like this before and didn’t know where to even start. So glad I called Hensley! They were so easy to work with and I’m sure got far more for me than I would’ve been able to get myself. They were kind, professional, and got the job done!
