Nursing Home Abuse

When we place a loved one in a nursing home, we expect that he or she will be treated with respect and dignity, and that his or her needs will be met. It is a shocking betrayal to learn that instead of being cared for, a loved one has been subjected to neglect and abuse in a nursing home or long-term care facility.

At The Gold Law Firm, we stand up for the rights of the elderly, infirm and disabled. If your loved one has been subjected to nursing home abuse or neglect, our attorneys are here to provide you with the guidance and advocacy you need.

Causes Of Nursing Home Neglect

How does neglect occur in Tennessee nursing homes? Oftentimes, it is simply a matter of economics. Nursing home facilities are for-profit institutions. By cutting corners and failing to train enough qualified staff members, these facilities put their residents at risk.

Common nursing home injuries include:

  • Bedsores
  • Medication errors
  • Falls
  • Injuries sustained while wandering off the premises

Tragically, victims of nursing home abuse are often unable to express themselves verbally and are forced to suffer in silence. When abuse and neglect are present, however, the innocent must be protected and responsible parties must be held accountable. Our lawyers are committed to making that happen.
