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

“After my car was totaled in an accident, the other driver gave a false name, left the scene, and left me alone on the side of the road with a concussion. Afterwards, insurance companies were contacting me with confusing information that I knew was not right, but I had no idea how to deal with them on my own. I was so fortunate to be directed to Maria Diamond. She made a personal visit to see me and learn what happened. Maria agreed to take my case and kept me informed and prepared for every step through the arbitration process and a successful outcome. My family is so grateful to Maria for her expertise, professionalism, and support during a very confusing and hurtful time. I would recommend her to anyone.” Sue Byron
