Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

As a nursing home abuse lawyer, Scott Mullins is committed to protecting the rights of your loved ones in nursing homes and recovery care facilities. Senior citizens are among the most valuable, but most vulnerable people in society and can oftentimes benefit from a nursing home abuse lawyer.

After decades of contributing to society and our lives, it is immoral and illegal for people to take advantage of those who can no longer care for themselves. If senior citizens are being abused, neglected of simply not receiving the proper, professional care that they deserve, they should be represented by a nursing home abuse lawyer.

It is important that senior citizens and their family are aware of their rights. When these rights are violated a nursing home abuse lawyer can provide consultation and representation to provide compensation and justice.

Many nursing home care providers do not intentionally mistreat their residents. In some instances, the abuse can come from circumstances that can just make treatment overwhelming for the nursing home facility. The work environment in nursing homes can be demanding and nursing home staffs sometimes lack supervision and the facility is understaffed. Other impacting variables include the employees’ training and backgrounds that can go unchecked. Whatever the case, it is never acceptable for senior citizens to be neglected, abused or treated with anything but the utmost care and professionalism. Anything other than the highest standards may justify a nursing home abuse attorney.

Such facilities are often required to provide assistance 24 hours a day. Failure to be able to provide skilled care for all patients at all hours of a day can be negligence and be the basis for hiring a nursing home abuse attorney.

Examples of when a nursing home abuse attorney may be needed:

  • Negligence in failing to restrain a disoriented patient
  • Medication errors including wrong dosages and wrong medications
  • Failure to diagnose and treat
  • Negligence in preventing and treating bed sores
  • Nursing Home Errors
  • Failure to supervise, wandering (elopement)
  • Nursing home falls, including patients being dropped during bed, wheelchair and toilet transfers, and slip and fall accidents
