Nursing Home Abuse

Most people cannot imagine the thought of attempting to hurt someone in a nursing home. This does not mean everyone understands what most of us believe that residents in nursing homes are there to receive treatment they need in a peaceful safe environment.

Nursing home abuse is real. According to the American Association of Justice, 1.4 million people live in U.S. nursing homes. And only 1 in 14 incidents of abuse is reported.

The following are the common signs of nursing home abuse:

  • Bruises or bleeding
  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Bedsores
  • Silence around caretakers
  • Bruises on or around an elder’s genitals
  • Unexplained illness or infection
  • Change in elder’s will
  • Change in power of attorney

If you believe your loved has been injured physically or from neglect call our experienced nursing abuse attorneys at Merritt & Merritt today.  Our attorneys are ready to assist you.  We understand each nursing abuse case is unique and requires personalized attention, thats why our attorneys will consult with you to address the legal issues so your loved one can receive the care and compensation they deserve.
