Why It’s So Important to Report Nursing Home Abuse

Why It’s So Important to Report Nursing Home Abuse

In 2008, over 3.2 million elderly Americans lived in nursing homes. The same survey discovered that California houses 7% of all nursing home residents in more than 1,200 distinct facilities. Sadly, abuse against the elderly is not uncommon even at facilities managed by multi-million dollar companies. Nursing home abuse not only puts lives at risk but leads to long-term negative psychological effects for nursing home residents and their families.

Taking Legal Action

We are Soileau Law Firm, a Pasadena personal injury attorney serving victims of nursing home abuse and their family members. We help our clients with their personal injury claims. It is our duty to fight for you and make sure that justice is served.

Serious injuries require serious attorneys. If you or a loved one has been abused by nursing home staff or if they have come to harm as a result of neglect or malpractice at a nursing home, hospice or another care facility, we will prepare a case and help you seek compensation for your pain, injuries, and ongoing care.

Nursing Home Abuse Statistics

Results from another survey conducted by the National Center for Victims of Crime discovered that 5-10% of all elder abuse cases concern physical injuries and abuse, while 60% of abuse is verbal and psychological abuse and 14% is neglect or low standards of care.

It is often that case that families and loved ones do not even know of the abuse. It is often difficult to see some forms of abuse on the surface, especially since many elderly patients at care facilities are not sound of mind or have a limited ability to communicate their concerns with loved ones. In some rare cases, these facilities will directly threaten or intimidate patients in order to stop abusive practices from being discovered.
