Nursing Home Abuse

When our loved ones are put in a nursing home or assisted living facility, the family has a reasonable expectation that the staff will be careful and responsible. Unfortunately, the nursing home staff is not always as trustworthy and reliable as we would like. Sometimes, residents are neglected or even abused by the nursing home staff.

Nursing abuse can be physical, emotional or sexual. Seniors can be neglected by not being fed, living in an unheated building, getting bed sores by not being moved, not being given medication or getting the wrong medication. There have even been instances of seniors being injured or killed because of fires erupting in the facility and not being evacuated in a timely manner.

Signs of possible nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • unexplained bruising
  • bedsores
  • listlessness or unresponsiveness from overmedication
  • fear of being left alone
  • consistent sanitation problems
  • staff members unwilling or reluctant to communicate with family
  • radical changes in financial behavior
  • missing heirlooms

If you suspect your loved one is being abused or neglected in a nursing home or assisted living facility, you should file a report with Florida Agency for Health Care Administration.  You should also consider contacting Gilman Law’s experienced team of Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers, who can assist you in obtaining compensation to treat your loved one’s injuries and place him or her in a facility that respects its residents’ dignity. The personal injury attorneys at Gilman Law are among the most experienced courtroom attorneys in Florida, and are dedicated to getting the maximum compensation for our nursing home abuse clients.
