Confronting Senior Abuse in Nursing Homes
We all want to do right by our older relatives through their golden years. After all, they were the people who helped raise and shape us in important ways. Because we are not usually capable of meeting the day to day healthcare needs of our senior relatives, many of us place our trust nursing homes and similar caregiving facilities to help us look after our loved ones, especially when our busy lives mean we can’t do it ourselves.
That’s what makes instances of elder abuse so offensive to our sensibilities. It isn’t just a betrayal of trust on the part of the caregiver to you, but it makes you feel sort of at fault in that betrayal of your family and loved one. Wanting to stand up to nursing homes’ cover-ups and poor excuses and hold them responsible is the right thing to do.
While much of our focus here has been on confronting nursing home neglect, there are other kinds of care facilities that can fail us in this respect and should be held accountable, including:
- Surgery Rehabilitation Clinics
- Assisted Living Homes
- Temporary Care Facilities
Your loved ones deserve better. You deserve better. That’s why contacting our skilled and experienced elder abuse attorneys in Greenville, SC, is important when you have reason to suspect neglect or abuse in any form. It takes knowledge, determination, and strategy to see this sort of thing through, but the experts at Farnsworth Law Offices are proven and ready to help, regardless of the form the abuse takes. Good lawyers help make things right.
Identifying Elder Abuse in Healthcare
What tends to be the worst thing about this kind of abuse is that it can be hard to detect, as well as to confront. Some kinds of abuse are harder to pin down than others, simply by them being relatively hidden. Others are easier if your relative is capable of telling you how they are suffering. Often bedsores or other signs of neglect aren’t discovered until a hospital visit due to a fall or illness.
As a former prosecutor and Assistant Solicitor for Greenville County, Mr Daniel J. Farnsworth, Jr. brings justice down on offenders for their careless neglect and indifference to the needs of their patients. Here are some of the specific types of elderly abuse we have helped clients identify to help them confront those responsible and make them answer their negligence:
- Bedsores/Pressure Sores
- Medication Errors
- Sexual Assault
- Physical Assault
- Patients Wandering into harm
- Serious Burns
- Wrongful Death
We have helped many, many families who have found themselves victims of neglect at the very places they were convinced would be safe and comfortable for their loved ones. You and your relatives don’t need to wonder what you can do when you suspect a loved one has been neglected or abused. Put us on the case and your mind at ease.
