Choosing a nursing home for your loved one is a difficult decision that should not be taken lightly. Every effort should be taken to ensure that the facility is safe, sanitary, and provides your loved one with the type of care he or she needs.

Nursing Home Abuse Cases
While no one ever expects that the assisted living facility where their family resides could be responsible for committing acts of neglect and/or abuse, the sad reality is that more than 30% of such facilities in the United States have committed some form of abuse, and this statistic only takes into consideration cases that have been reported. Nursing home abuse can take on a variety of forms, including:
- Physical Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Emotional Abuse
- Malnutrition or Dehydration
- Medication Errors
- Bed Sores, Pressure Sores, Decubitus Ulcers
- Physical or Chemical Restraints
- Clogged Breathing Tubes
- Wandering and Elopement
- Alzheimer’s and other dementias
- COVID-19 Exposure
Sadly, nursing home abuse cases often go unreported. Victims are sometimes silent out of fear or embarrassment, and loved ones do not always know the signs of abuse to look for. At Spiros Law, P.C., we are dedicated to preserving the rights and dignity of all people. We understand that abuse cases are highly emotional and we will handle your situation with the utmost professionalism and care.
