Nursing Home Abuse in Florida

By Smith & Stallworth  Feb. 4, 2011 10:51p

A nursing home is intended to be a place of refuge, care, comfort and relaxation for elderly individuals in need of care as they are unable to properly do so for themselves. Sadly, there are many cases in which neglect or abuse becomes an all-too common theme at these businesses, resulting in injury, traumatic damage or even the wrongful death of loved ones. The caretakers of the elderly are expected to uphold a very high level of care and attention to their charges. When they fail in this duty, they violate the trust that has been placed in them, as well as laws regarding abuse and neglect. If a beloved elderly family member has suffered from abuse or neglect, contact a Tampa personal injury attorney as soon as possible to begin building a case to seek compensation from the liable company.

Nursing home abuse or neglect is simply an unacceptable dereliction of duty and trust on the behalf of nursing home employees or owners. When an elderly person develops bedsores, suffers falls, becomes malnourished, is under or over medicated, or even worse, is the victim of sexual or physical abuse, the nursing home or employee liable for these actions can and must be held responsible for their actions. By acting quickly and obtaining evidence such as photographs of injuries and the living environment, you can improve your chances of filing a claim and winning a case against a nursing home.
