Nursing Home Abuse
Philadelphia Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

How Does Elder Care Abuse Occur?
We often find that elder care abuse is a result of negligent hiring. Nursing homes and home health care agencies may fail to do adequate background checks on employees hired to care for the elderly. Nursing assistants with long histories of criminal activity or drug abuse are sometimes allowed into the elder care system. This can lead to instances of negligent nursing home care.
We handle cases involving:
- Falls in nursing homes
- Medication errors
- Elder physical or sexual abuse
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Improper use of restraints
- Broken bones
- Wandering or elopement
- Wrongful death
