“Neglect” means the failure of a caregiver to provide food, shelter, clothing, medical services, or health care for the person unable to care for self; or the failure of person to provide these needs for self as result of mental or physical inability. (Any conditions, which fall under this definition, are considered as abuse due to neglect.)
Nursing home abuse due to neglect can be confirmed if you see the following or related symptoms:
While no amount of money or compensation can make up for the trauma your loved one faced, you should still take legal action against the responsible person so that this does not happen again. You can contact a nursing home neglect attorney at our law firm to help you and the victim get justice!
