Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
We Proudly Represent Elders & Their Families in South Houston
When you place your loved one into a nursing home or elder-care facility,

care. Unfortunately, this is not the case for nearly 1 in 10 Americans

More disturbingly, the National Center on Elder Abuse estimates that only
1 in 14 elder abuse cases are brought to the attention of authorities.
Whether your loved one is suffering from abuse or neglect at the hands
of nursing home staff, it’s vital that you contact an experienced
lawyer immediately. When you retain Soileau Law Firm, P.C., our South

What Is Considered Nursing Home Neglect?
Nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are subject to some very
stringent Federal regulations. As it relates to nursing home neglect,
these regulations require the facility to “…maintain the
highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each
resident in accordance with a written plan of care.” The regulations
get far more specific from there, clearly defining the minimum standard
of care for these facilities.
Common signs of nursing home neglect include:
- Sudden or unusual weight loss
- Lack of cleanliness or hygiene
- Untreated bedsores or pressure ulcers
- Unreported injuries or infections
- Unexplained wandering
- Sudden or uncharacteristic change in behavior
If you’ve seen any of these signs, or other factors that make you
suspect elder neglect or abuse, contact our nursing home abuse attorney today.
