We Hold Nursing Homes Accountable For Injuries That Could Have Been Avoided
Families place a loved one in a nursing home because that person needs more care than they can give. They trust the nursing home will provide high-quality care. Because families place so much trust in nursing homes and skilled care facilities, it can be devastating when those facilities’ actions are abusive or neglectful.
The experienced trial attorneys at Oxner & Stacy Law Firm LLC, in Georgetown and Litchfield, South Carolina, hold nursing homes accountable for injuries caused by abuse and neglect. They are aggressive litigators and skilled negotiators who are dedicated to protecting your interests and the interests of those you care about.
Investigating A Nursing Home Injury
Nursing home residents experience a wide range of injuries while under nursing home care:
- Bed sores (pressure sores or decubitus ulcers)
- Broken bones
- Urinary tract infections (UTI) and fecal impaction
At first, it may seem unclear whether these nursing home injuries are due to abuse or neglect. Most nursing home staff will never tell you that the injuries are due to a problem. In addition to keeping a close eye on the person injured, look for changes in the way the staff treats you as well. Changes in their behavior may be clues that the injuries are due to nursing home abuse or neglect — not accidents or normal illnesses.
