Protect Your Elders From Nursing Home Negligence And Abuse

Nursing homes and other elder care facilities are supposed to provide medical treatment and care for our loved ones. Unfortunately, instances of nursing home negligence and abuse happen far more often throughout Delaware than most people would like to believe. This type of treatment causes serious injuries, and even death, leaving families to deal with these problems on their own.

We know the warning signs and how to pursue claims against elder care facilities where this type of mistreatment is happening. You should not have to worry about how your loved one is being treated. You need an experienced advocate to obtain a recovery on your behalf.

Watch For Signs Of Nursing Home Negligence

  • Bed sores
  • Medication errors

In addition to neglect and improper care, there are also instances of physical abuse that happen in nursing homes and elder care facilities. Abuse can be either physical or psychological in nature.
