Nursing Home Abuse
With years of experience winning nursing home lawsuits, The Law Firm of Brian Murphy, P.C. will help you to create an action plan to prevent, control, or react to any abuse or neglect your loved one may experience.
Many Woodbridge nursing homes are for-profit entities, focusing on increasing revenue rather than providing proper care to their residents. As a result, staffing levels are kept dangerously low, which many times leads to neglect and/or abuse. Signs of nursing home neglect and abuse include:
- Bed sores / pressure ulcers
- Cuts / wounds
- Medication errors
- Poor hygiene
- Psychological abuse
- Sudden unexpected health decline / death
Bed sores, also known as pressure ulcers, are a very serious concern in many Woodbridge nursing homes. If left untreated, serious medical problems can develop and potentially lead to death.
Bed sores are wounds induced by constant pressure wearing down skin on certain parts of the body. Nursing homes and other care facilities have a responsibility to prevent these wounds by frequently turning residents so they are not positioned on one body part for too long. Pressure ulcers begin as coin-sized red marks that, without proper attention and care, have the potential to develop into large deep wounds.
