Nursing homes are supposed to provide your loved one with the full-time care that they need. Most times, the staff and other residents are great and your loved one is in the best hands. But sometimes, they are not, and your loved one suffers from nursing home abuse. In fact, one in six residents experience some form of abuse in community settings, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
When your loved one is being abused at their long-term care facility, you might be hesitant to report because you don’t know who to turn to. Reporting the abuse is important so that your loved one can get justice and so the abusers cannot cause harm to anybody else. A nursing home abuse lawyer from the Law Office of Todd W. Burris will ensure that your loved one is supported and is treated fairly through their case.
