Call an Attorney Passionate About Nursing Home Abuse

The Center for Disease Control reports that as of 2014, there were over fifteen thousand nursing homes in the United States and more than 1.5 million licensed beds in those facilities. That number will surely grow in the coming years as baby boomers enter into care facilities. The vast majority of nursing facilities provide excellent care for patients. Unfortunately, that is not true across the board. Some facilities are willing to sacrifice the health and well-being of their patients in order to make more money. Other facilities simply lack the knowledge, skill, and abilities to provide proper patient care. Whatever the reason, patients at nursing homes deserve nothing less than competent, professional care. If you or someone you know has been injured in a nursing home, we can help. We have the experience to seek compensation for intentional or negligent acts. Some of these acts include:

  • Improper or insufficient restraint
