Families and friends are not always in a position to care for the needs of aging parents, relatives, family members and other loved ones. With the ever increasing number of baby-boomers, for-profit nursing homes and assisted living centers are increasing in numbers, and the numbers of seniors they care for is similarly increasing, which has led to negligent care of some of these elderly patients. These elderly persons are not being provided with adequate attention and are suffering abuse because they may be abused mentally, physically assaulted or financially taken advantage of. If you believe a loved one has suffered from nursing home negligence or elder abuse, please consult with an attorney to discuss the events surrounding your belief of elder abuse.
Our lawyers have determined that elder and senior abuse directly results from the negligent hiring by nursing homes and assisted care living centers. Florida nursing homes should perform a background check on all potential nursing home employees to protect the elderly and senior citizens they will be caring for. This background check will provide information of both criminal activity as well as drug use which may affect their ability to care for your loved one who is being cared for at an assisted care facility. If you believe that your elderly loved one has been injured or is suffering because of negligent actions of the nursing home staff, please immediately contact one of our nursing home negligence attorneys.
