Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Abuse and neglect of the elderly and vulnerable is a major problem in the United States. Often victims are unable to report what has happened because of their mental state, because they are too weak, or because they fear retaliation. Nursing home and rehabilitation facilities have a duty to provide quality care to their patients. Examples of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Rape or sexual assault
  • Bed sores
  • Improper restraints
  • Over-medication
  • Inadequate food and liquids
  • Failure to change bandages, bedding, and undergarments
  • Failure to prevent falls

See examples of our nursing home abuse and neglect cases.

“My daughter was injured during birth when a catheter punctured my womb. She suffered from a loss of blood, and several other mistakes were made before she was finally resuscitated. My mother, who is a nurse, suggested Judy Massong. With her as my attorney, I felt I was in the most experienced hands. With Judy's help, we settled twice, once with the hospital and again with the medical device manufacturer. Judy is as strong as a bulldog, and she always made it her goal to keep us informed and help us find the resolution we needed as a family. We have worked hard on my daughter’s recovery, and as challenging as it can be, she is an affectionate, loving, social, bright little girl.” Julie L.
