Nursing Home Neglect
As people age, their personal needs become more important and unfortunately, more complicated. Often times, elderly people are sent to nursing homes or other similar assisted living facilities so that they may receive adequate attention and care from professionally trained caregivers. Disappointingly, some elderly residents of such facilities suffer from abuse due to neglect and/or a lack of training of their caregivers. Nursing home abuse and neglect are serious issues today and are too often overlooked and left unresolved.
Recently, an 81-year-old woman received a settlement of $121,000 for being a victim of nursing home negligence in Chester County, Pennsylvania. After several falls, the assisted living facility in which she resided failed to provide adequate professional care by not altering her care plan to address her known and increased risk of falling, thus causing the woman to fall again and suffer a serious spinal injury.
