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.

“I was only 18 when my son Lucas was born and didn’t realize his slow development was due to an injury during birth. When I met Judy Massong, I was young, naïve, and destitute. She was compassionate, cared a lot about Lucas, and alleviated my fears about going to trial. Her knowledge of medical terminology was incredibly helpful and contributed to the verdict against the hospital. I am still caring for my son, who requires 24-hour care, and this would not have been possible without Judy’s representation. She is awesome.” Cheryl Marshall
