Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Comments Off

America has to face the growing problem of caring for our frail elderly. All too often, our loved ones are mistreated and abused by underpaid overworked nursing home staff. It is time Americans address this horrendous problem by bringing to light the abuse anytime it is found.

Just today I read about a terrible case of abuse and neglect that occurred in California. The article reminded me of a case that occurred here in Arkansas not too long ago. The article related the story of a wonderful man who suffered a stroke. Unable to care for him herself, his wife placed him in a nursing home that cost $75,000 a year. Apparently someone became frustrated and wrapped a towel around his head until he died from lack of oxygen.

I hope the family will get to the bottom of this terrible case and save others from the same fate.
Over the years, our firm has had the privilege of representing the victims of nursing home abuse and neglect to right these terrible wrongs. We hope we have done just a little to make life better for those loved ones who are still being cared for in homes.
