Residential care for elderly nursing home residents may not be delivered as pledged. Should a safety or injury issue arise, it may be hard to determine causes of problems. Staffs are reticent to talk and the elderly may be unwilling or unable to explain what happened.
Responsible adults who suspect that nursing home care is insufficient or has resulted in an injury should get medical care for the loved one, notify residence management of concerns, and seek legal counsel. Attorneys familiar with nursing homes can help elderly loved ones receive a high level of care, or determine the bases of injuries and hold parties accountable.
