Nursing Home Negligence
A Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer can help pursue your Nursing Home Dispute in Cleveland and across Ohio
Nursing home negligence occurs when a nursing home facility has failed to provide residents with quality care that meets the required standards due to negligence and/or abuse.
The rights of an individual should not be ignored simply because that person is of the age and health that requires admission into an assisted living facility. When we place our older loved ones in a nursing home facility, we expect they will be given the care they need and be treated with respect, dignity, and concern.
Nursing home negligence has become a growing concern for many Americans. Both the federal and state governments have introduced legislation to protect nursing home residents from neglect, mistreatment and abuse.
Nursing home negligence and/or abuse may involve:
- Physical violence
- Rough or aggressive handling of patients
- Inadequate supervision
- Outright failure to give proper care
These actions may result in serious injury, illness, or death. An Ohio nursing home negligence lawyer can help you file a claim ensuring compensation for suffering, and to help make the nursing home facility in question safer for other patients.
