Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer

Nursing home abuse does not always manifest itself by physical acts of violence. Nursing home abuse can also be committed through neglect or negligent conduct. Nursing home negligence can include the lack of assistance with eating, drinking and personal hygiene; failure to move patients as necessary to avoid bed sores, and lack of prompt medical attention. When nursing home doctors or nurses fail to provide the adequate level of medical treatment, they may be liable for medical malpractice.
