Atlanta Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Helping Abused Elderly and Their Families Seek Justice

Elder neglect and nursing home abuse is a serious problem in the United States, and it's only growing worse as an increasing number of senior citizens find themselves in assisted living environments. Nursing home negligence can include physical, emotional, sexual, financial and psychological abuse. Common problems include bedsores, inadequate medical care, malnutrition, dehydration and preventable accidents.

Because senior citizens are more vulnerable to mistreatment than their younger and healthier counterparts, their bodies can succumb much faster to the effects of abuse and neglect. No matter what the context, it is crucial to act quickly as nursing home cases can be difficult to document and prove once a suspicion arises. If you need to file a claim regarding nursing home abuse or injuries, contact Goldstein & Hayes, P.C. today and speak with our Atlanta nursing home abuse attorneys today.

What Are The Signs of Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect?

One of the biggest challenges in discovering elder neglect or abuse is the fact that so many victims remain silent. In some instances, medication is used to keep patients quiet, controlled and compliant. In other circumstances, victims are unaware of the abuse taking place. It is not unprecedented for a drug-addicted staff member to withhold medication as a means of feeding their own habit. Physical abuse will generally manifest itself in a visible injury, but other forms of abuse are harder to spot.

  • Your loved one may be experiencing nursing home abuse if you notice the following:
  • Patient withdrawal
  • Behavioral stress signals - like rocking or mumbling
  • Weight loss
  • Dehydration
  • Bedsores
  • Uncleanliness
  • Extended periods of isolation
