North Carolina Nursing Home Neglect
The Best Prevention
Nursing home neglect and abuse are serious problems affecting thousands in Raleigh and Fayetteville nursing homes. Signs of nursing home neglect can be difficult to recognize without proper information and they are often covered-up by staff. At the law firm of Brent Adams & Associates we feel that nursing home neglect and abuse must be prevented. The best way to do that is to hold nursing homes accountable for their actions and the actions of its employees.
Brent Adams & Associates is dedicated to pursuing claims arising out of nursing home neglect and abuse. Because many residents at nursing homes have limited abilities to communicate, identifying and dealing with nursing home neglect and abuse requires knowledge of your loved one's rights and experience.
Brent Adams & Associates handles nursing home neglect and abuse cases on a regular basis. Additionally, we have experts available in all healthcare fields including medical doctors who specialize in various fields such as geriatrics, nutrition, surgery, experts in nursing, nursing home administration and other professionals knowledgeable in nursing home matters.
Cases of Negligence
We handle nursing home cases involving malnutrition, bed sores, open wounds, dehydration, weight loss, falls, burns, infections, inadequate supervision (walk aways), over sedation and negligence in many other forms. Numerous federal and state laws were developed to provide nursing home patients protection from abuse and neglect. Additionally, patients have privacy, security and other rights.
Nursing home neglect can be difficult to detect. Residents are protected by the Nursing Home Reform Act and Americans with Disabilities Act. Nursing home patients may find themselves subject to dozens of adverse conditions through no fault of their own - bed injuries, bed sores, falls, fractures, malnutrition and dehydration are some of the more prominent injuries. If you suspect that your loved one could be a victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, you may wish to have your case evaluated.
