The Emanuel Firm, P.A. expands law services to include nursing home negligence
Nursing home neglect, abuse, and exploitation is a serious problem in Florida. Let The Emanuel Firm, P.A., represent you.
It is estimated that one out of every five residents suffers from some form of elder abuse or nursing home negligence. Failure to seek out, report, and prevent nursing home abuses may be considered withholding of care. It is important that residents, family members, friends, volunteers, staff members, and law enforcement officers remain vigilant in order to protect the safety and well-being of nursing home residents.
Many nursing homes are understaffed. This means that nurses are overworked, which leads to mistakes being made more often than they should be. For example, staff members may forget to give a resident their medication or fail to notice that a patient is in pain. In other instances, residents are neglected by nursing home staff. Neglect can be physical, emotional, or spiritual. Physical neglect includes not changing the resident’s clothing when it is soiled from incontinence and ignoring requests for assistance moving from one place to another. Emotional neglect often involves failing to show kindness or love towards a resident, withholding care based on a person’s race or skin color, not speaking with a person who has dementia because they cannot communicate back.
The Emanuel Firm, P.A., can help you if you suspect your loved ones have been victims of elder abuse or nursing home negligence at any time during their stay at a Florida facility. Our law firm has decades of experience representing families who have suffered the loss of a loved one due to wrongful death caused by another’s actions or inaction – including medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, and other forms of elder abuse and exploitation. We will listen carefully to your story and determine if we may be able to assist you with legal action against those responsible for your family member’s injuries or death due to nursing home negligence.
It is important to remember that nursing home neglect and abuse are not always easy to spot. In many cases, the signs may be subtle and can go unnoticed for long periods of time. Family members should visit their loved ones often, and if they notice any changes in their behavior or physical condition, they should report this to the nursing home staff immediately. It is also important to keep an open line of communication with the nursing home staff so that any concerns or problems can be addressed as soon as possible.
