Tinley Park nursing home abuse lawyers

Family is one of the most important things in life. People cherish their families. They turn to family members for comfort and love. When a family member starts to age, it can be painful for all involved. In that case, the loved one will want to make sure that their family member has the means to continue to enjoy life even if they have age related impairments. One way to do so is via living at a nursing home. A nursing home is often a useful place for people to get the long-term care they need in a setting that is warm and inviting. Living alone in a house can be far too much for any older person. The nursing home provides them with enough space so they can live out their golden years with loving care. While nursing homes are often run well, sometimes there may be an issue with the management of the facility.

Many Forms

Nursing home abuse and neglect can take many forms. For example, a loved one may have suffered a fall because they were not watched closely. The loved one may also have problems because the hallways and other areas were not kept free of unnecessary obstacles in their path. A loved one may also have other problems. For instance, not all nursing home residents are well behaved. As people age, they may suffer changes to their personality. A person with no known history of violent behavior may act out after the death of a spouse. The resident may pose just a danger to themselves. They may also pose a danger to other residents of the facility. A loved one may be directly in danger because they have been assaulted by another resident of the facility. If the facility does not provide proper restraints, this can directly endanger the person’s health and even their lives. The areas may also not be cleaned up properly. Staffers who not paid well or left to do the work of multiple staffers at the same time, may not keep the facility as clean as required under state laws.

Taking Action

If there is abuse in the nursing home, loved ones have many potential options to help the nursing home resident. A loved one can start by fully documenting all evidence of abuse they notice during any visit. For example, the loved one can take pictures of the loved one next to a bed that is obviously filthy as well by a window that has not been cleaned. The loved one can also think about what kinds of further steps they need to take get any issues addressed. Speaking with the home’s administrations can be useful first step. However, such officials may simply tell the loved one that steps are being taken without indicating any further remedies. The loved one may also notice that staffers are not doing their job to assist patients by providing them with the medical, emotional and physical care they need to function each day. In that case, additional actions may be necessary in order to get the nursing home to comply with all regulations that govern the operation of the facility. These may include appeals to state authorities and hiring a lawyer to fine the facility for failure to comply with such regulations.

A Civil Lawsuit

Tinley Park nursing home abuse lawyers can file a civil lawsuit against the facility in question. If a resident is injured or neglected as a result of the actions of nursing home staffers and administrators, a civil lawsuit may be one possible remedy. Civil lawsuits are designed to provide people with access to a form of legal help when a contract is not enforced. For example, if the facility agreed to provide the resident with safe care but the resident was injured because they did not do so, the lawyers can sue the facility on the resident’s behalf in civil court. Nursing home administrators can also be held liable if they did not do enough to provide the resident with access to the medical care they are guaranteed under the contract. An elderly patient with mobility issues may benefit greatly from access physical therapists who can help them regain lost motion. If the facility did not provide them with access to such care, this is considered a form of negligence that makes the facility liable under many laws. A lawyer can help the loved one sort out the issues that may apply to in their specific personal case.
