Indiana Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
Help for Victims of Nursing Home Injuries & Abuse in Indiana
Nursing home abuse and negligence is a disturbing and quickly growing problem
in our country. The
Indiana injury lawyers at Crossen Kooi handle these cases for victims and their families with
the passion and conviction they deserve. Nursing homes are paid handsomely
to provide a safe and secure environment for all of their residents. In
accepting this money, there are a number of federal and state laws which
obligate nursing homes to protect their vulnerable patients.
Common Types of Abuse and Neglect in Nursing Homes
Nursing home abuse and neglect come in variety of forms ranging from physical
to psychological, cognitive, or financial. In most cases nursing home
injuries are preventable through proper training, precautions and appropriate
attention by employees. When medical professionals working in these facilities
neglect elderly patients, such neglect can lead to severe injuries or
in some cases, death. Injuries can vary, and may include an unassisted
fall, bed sores, skin ulcers, assaults, amputations or other negligence or abuse.
Holding Care Providers Liable for Negligence and Abuse
Nursing home employees and the facilities that hire them have a duty to
provide the appropriate standard of medical care and see that their patients
have the quality of life expected in their facility. When nursing home
employees neglect these duties and cause injury to their patients, they
or the facility that employs them can be held liable for the resulting harm.
Nursing homes are paid to protect and care for the weak and vulnerable.
