Oklahoma Nursing Home Abuse | Attorney
A nursing home is usually a place of caring, sympathy and understanding, where treasured family members can have access to the specialized care that their families cannot provide. While most of these homes are staffed with only the most competent and caring individuals, our loved ones are sometimes placed in the charge of homes that value profits ahead of health and well-being of their patients. Sadly, their voices are often the last heard and least believed and such abuse can go overlooked until it is too late.
Reports show that 30% of nursing homes have been cited for some form of abuse. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for serious abuses to go unreported, which contributes to the countless lives lost to dehydration, infection, starvation, and neglect. As the population of the United States continues to age, more families will have to face difficult choices about whether to trust a nursing system whose integrity is suspect.
If your loved ones have suffered abuse at the hands of their trusted caregivers, you have a right and a duty to take action against those who took advantage of your trust. For more information on how to fight nursing home abuse, contact us today.
