Kentucky Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
Nursing homes promote themselves as safe, comfortable havens for the elderly and disabled who require assistance. Nursing home staff are responsible for caring for patients’ needs and well-being, including maintaining clean facilities. When they fail to do so, they must be held legally responsible for their actions.
Nursing Home Malpractice Cases Can Be Complicated
Nursing home malpractice can come in many forms. Sometimes, patients are victims of nursing home neglect. In such cases, patients may be malnourished or suffering from dehydration or bedsores.
In other instances, nursing home malpractice can take the form of nursing home abuse. In such cases, staff members intentionally harm patients physically or psychologically. Victims of nursing home abuse can have physical marks on them or even require hospitalization to address their injuries. Be on the lookout for signs of nursing home abuse or neglect.
