Your loved ones deserve proper care and respect should they have to be placed in a nursing home. If you suspect a loved one is suffering from neglect or abuse in a nursing home, call Bradley Law. We are located in Albuquerque, but provide legal services for the entire state of New Mexico. We are available to handle nursing home abuse and neglect injuries in Albuquerque and the rest of New Mexico.
Loved ones living in a nursing home often are unable to express issues of abuse or neglect. Sometimes, even if able to express such concerns, they keep the abuse or neglect quiet so they do not upset their loved ones. We are here to help you and your loved one. We will stand up for their rights and we will pursue fair compensation for their suffering and losses endured because of a nursing home’s abuse or negligence.
Common nursing home cases include:
Neglect injuries— Without proper supervision or attentive staff, nursing home residents are more likely to fall suffering serious injuries or get bedsores and pressure ulcers. Further, neglect can also lead to dehydration and malnutrition, which can change the body’s electrolytes—a condition that can prove fatal. While being understaffed and overworked are common themes in nursing homes, it is no excuse for the neglect of your loved one.
Medication errors: Negligence can also be present in medication administration. Whether your loved one was given the wrong medication, wrong dose, or not given a medication, the result of any of these scenarios could result in serious conditions or death.
Abuse: While no nursing home should ever abuse its residents, sadly it occurs. Most commonly, from the frustrations of being understaffed and overworked, but there is never an excuse to abuse a nursing home resident. If nursing home staff has abused your loved one, it is important you seek legal representation to help punish this type of behavior. It is NEVER ok to abuse anyone, let alone someone that has put their trust in a nursing home to care for them during vulnerable times.
While the general feeling is helplessness, there is help out there to protect your loved one. The most important step is to contact an attorney when you first suspect negligence or abuse by the nursing home. An attorney can investigate the abuse or neglect and initiate a plan to get compensation for the substandard behavior.
We will investigate your claims of abuse or neglect against the nursing home. The facilities must be held accountable for their actions, and we want to help you do so. While nursing homes may have several excuses, it is important to understand that no excuse is legitimate when it comes to the care of your loved one.
Our focus is on you and your loved one. We will sit down with you and discuss the best course of action to protect your loved one. If you suspect your loved one is the subject of nursing home abuse or neglect, call us for a free, no obligation consultation. We will provide aggressive representation with compassion for you and your loved one.
