Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Santa Rosa
Placing a person you love into a nursing home can be a difficult and emotional situation. You do so, expecting that your family member will be treated well and that they can continue to live a productive life in a more structured and nurturing environment. Most of the time, that is the case.
However, at other times, their quality of care suffers greatly. They can become victims of nursing home abuse in a number of ways, including:
- 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
When you suspect one or more of these types of things are happening, you should contact local authorities to investigate and The Cartwright Law Firm to protect your family member and their rights.
