Las Vegas Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Nursing homes are supposed to ensure that grandparents or elderly parents get the best care possible when we are unable to be there for our loved ones. Nursing homes are supposed to be supportive and nurturing. When a negligent act by a nursing home caregiver includes emotional, physical, sexual abuse, abandonment, this is neglect. Most elderly victims are incapable of defending themselves or reporting mistreatment. The Las Vegas nursing home negligence attorneys of our law firm represent victims of both abuse or exploitation and neglect amounting to mistreatment in residential care settings.

In nursing homes, several factors have been shown to contribute to the abuse or neglect of residents, including: poorly qualified and inadequately trained staff; staff with a history of violence; inadequate numbers of staff; the isolation of residents; and, the known reluctance of residents to report abuse out of embarrassment or fear. Additionally cost-cutting measures and other forms of negligence regularly result in nursing home injuries, injuries that never should have happened

Specific examples of nursing home abuse and neglect are:

  • Bedsores and skin ulcers
  • Serious Infections
  • Improper dispensation or monitoring of prescription medications
  • Physical abuse, physical injures or pain, or broken bones
  • Sexual abuse, e.g., non-consensual sexual contact of any kind
  • Psychological or emotional anguish, including humiliation, intimidation, or threats
  • Exploitation of resources of an elderly individual for another's financial or material gain without their consent
  • Caretaker neglect such as failure to provide food, goods or services in order to avoid physical and mental harm e.g., denial of heath services, food and or abandonment
