Placing an elderly loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility can be a heart-wrenching decision. Each year millions of families have to consider placing a loved one in a facility where their medical and living needs can be met, safely. We would like to think that the facilities and people whom we entrust their care will provide the same standard of care we gave, but often that’s not the case.
Elder abuse in nursing homes is unfortunately all too common in today’s society. Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP is dedicated to upholding the quality of care in our long-term care institutions by seeking compensation for residents who are injured by neglect or inadequate care.
Elderly people tend to have a weaker immune system, and if injured often have a longer recovery time, which can lead to severe injuries.
Abuse can result in any of the following:
- Sexual Abuse
- Chemical or Physical Restraints
- Medication Errors
- Unsanitary or Unhygienic Conditions
- Wrongful Death
If you believe any form of abuse has occurred please call the White Plains nursing home lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® at (914) 336-5995 or toll-free, 24/7 at 1800LAW1010 (1-800-529-1010).
