Why Nursing Home Abuse Happens

Nursing home residents are among society’s most vulnerable individuals. Unfortunately, this makes them easy targets for various types of mistreatment by staff.

Federal Guidelines

Recent studies have concluded that many nursing homes throughout the United States are failing to meeting Federal Staffing Guidelines and the government is not penalizing the offenders.


Common Signs of Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

More often than not, abuse and neglect in nursing homes is a result of purposeful decisions made by the companies that own the nursing homes. These decisions, which are oftentimes made in order to increase the profitability of the companies that own and manage the nursing homes, result in the nursing homes being understaffed and poorly managed. Common causes and signs of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Understaffed Facilities
  • Unsanitary Conditions
  • UTI or other Infections
  • Overworked Staff
  • Elopement
  • Medication Errors
  • Frequent Falls
  • Pressure Sores
  • Chemical Restraints
  • Physical Assault
  • Dehydration
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Choking
  • Malnutrition

What determines the value of a nursing home abuse case?

The value of a nursing home abuse case is determined by the severity, duration, and other details of the abuse and injuries suffered. When you contact Henson Fuerst, a North Carolina nursing home abuse lawyer will go over the facts surrounding the case and help you determine the best way to move forward.

What do nursing home abuse lawyers charge?

The North Carolina nursing home abuse lawyers at Henson Fuerst handle most cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay us nothing unless we win or settle your case. Some cases, however, are handled on an hourly or project basis depending on case circumstances and facts. Call us today for an initial free case review and consultation, and we will talk further with you about how we would handle your case.
