Has your loved one suffered abuse while in a nursing home?
Help is just a call or a click away!
Attorney Jeff D. Stewart
Although some signs of elder abuse are obvious, many others are subtle and go unnoticed. Unfortunately, these subtle signs often remain undiscovered until it is too late. In fact, elderly people who experience physical or emotional abuse in a nursing facility have a 300% higher mortality rate than those who have not been abused.
Any physical, verbal or emotional abuse in a nursing home is unlawful and can have a severe impact on the overall health and well being of the victim.

If you suspect your loved one is the victim of abuse, it's important to report your suspicions to the local authorities as soon as possible.
If the situation is severe or life-threatening, please contact 911.
After reporting the abuse, there are several steps you will need to take to make sure your elderly family member remains safe and healthy. At this point, many people choose to hire an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer. A trusted lawyer will help your family through this difficult process, as well as hold the negligent nursing home liable for the physical or emotional pain they have caused.
A lawyer will also guide your family through the process of finding the right nursing home for your loved one. The facility should be clean, have a sufficient staff-to-patient ratio, have stellar credentials, and be free of complaints or citations.
