Nursing Home Physical Abuse
Do Not Accept Abusive Behavior
The elderly members of our society are entitled to the dignity of their senior years; the dignity of being human beings. This dignity is taken away from them when they are abused.
If you suspect that your loved one has been abused at a nursing home, managed care facility or other long-term care facility, act now to protect him or her. Elder abuse is illegal and must be stopped. Contact the Queens nursing home abuse lawyers at Ginsberg & Katsorhis, P.C., today. Call us toll free at (718) 591-6900.
The system will change only when people stand up for vulnerable adults and join the effort to stop elder abuse. Let us help you bring the abuser's actions to light. Let us make your case known and tell the abuser that this can never, ever, happen again.
When a Nursing Home Broke Your Trust and Hurt Your Loved One
Nursing home abuse is easy to hide. Residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are often particularly vulnerable to abuse because they are forgotten members of our society. While they may have visitors once in a while, many nursing home residents will go days, even weeks, without visitors. Where no one is around to notice the abuse, it continues.
As a society, we tend to trust nursing homes to take care of our older family members. That trust is often broken, leaving us to pick up the pieces. After elder abuse has occurred, there are a number of steps we can take to ensure justice is achieved. This includes holding the abusers financially accountable for their actions in court.
Recognizing the Signs of Abuse
Nursing home abuse can happen in many different ways: physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual assault and neglect. The signs of abuse can range from obvious signs — such as bruises, cuts, malnutrition/dehydration, broken bones and head/brain injuries — to less-obvious signs — such as torn clothing, emotional unrest, unusual behavior, weight loss and an unexplained change in medication. We can help you determine whether elder abuse has occurred by looking at the whole picture and thoroughly investigating your case.
