Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in San Mateo
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, bedsores, 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
