About Dallas Nursing Home Neglect Claims and Cases
Most people place an elderly loved one in an assisted living facility or nursing home because they can no longer adequately care for their needs. Nursing home caregivers, medical and non-medical, have the obligation to treat their residents and patients with a standard level of care, providing for their needs in regard to nutrition, hygiene and medical treatment. Negligence in any of these areas can be disastrous, leading to slip and fall accidents, bed sores, lasing illness, malnutrition, and even death. Maltreatment can also cause physical injury as well as extensive psychological damage.
Your elderly loved one deserves the best care and treatment. If you suspect or have seen evidence of nursing home neglect, elder abuse or any similar condition, it is important that you consult an attorney about taking legal action. You can help your loved one and can bring the responsible caregiver or facility to justice for their actions.
