Top San Mateo Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
While most nursing homes provide patients with quality care over an extended period of time, there are instances where care is substandard to the point that a patient can suffer tremendously and become a victim of nursing home abuse.
That abuse can take place in many ways:
- Physical abuse in the form of cuts, bruises, or other unexplained injuries
- Abuse from neglect that can be the result of unsanitary living conditions such as lack of bathing or grooming, malnutrition or dehydration
- Mental abuse from mocking, isolation or ignoring a patient
- Financial abuse such as identity theft, forgery or stealing money from a patient’s account
If you suspect that a family member is a victim of nursing home abuse, your first call should be to local authorities to investigate possible criminal wrongdoing. Then you should immediately call The Cartwright Law Group to make sure your financial and civil rights are protected as well.
