It's difficult for Pennsylvanians to place loved ones in nursing homes, but when we do, we expect the facilities to care for them, protect them and make sure they are always safe. That's why it's so devastating to find out a loved one has been abused or neglected by caregivers. Nursing home abuse and neglect cases in Pennsylvania demand strong legal action. If you or a loved one is being neglected or physically abused in a nursing home, call (866) 326-0100 for a free consultation. We fight for victims of nursing home abuse and neglect. We're located in Northeastern Pennsylvania and know the area and know how to get results.

This part of Pennsylvania has many elderly residents. They deserve to live their lives with dignity and respect, especially if they served our country and are now living in retirement facilities like the Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center.

"What should I do if a loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect?"

The first thing you should do is contact the police. Nursing home abuse or neglect can be a crime! Your loved one's life could be danger. That's why it's important to take steps immediately to protect the health and well-being of your loved one. The sooner you can get them to another location or have the person responsible for the abuse arrested or removed from the facility, the better.

Remember, your loved one probably isn't the only patient being abuse or neglect. When you take action to protect your loved one, you are doing your part to make the nursing home safer for every patient who lives there.

What are the common signs of nursing home abuse and neglect?

Nursing home abuse and neglect can be extremely hard to identity. That's why it's important that you carefully look for any possible signs of abuse or neglect. Some of the most common warning signs that something isn't right with the nursing home include:

  • Bed sores
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Malnutrition
  • Sudden changes in behavior
  • Unexplained bruises
  • Broken bones
  • Infections
  • Excessive tiredness

What if the nursing home denies abusing or neglecting a loved one?

When accused of neglect or abuse, nursing homes often deny any wrongdoing. They might even try to point the finger at your loved one, claiming he did something to cause his own injuries or illness. Don't try to engage in an argument with the nursing home. Simply take strong legal action against by contacting O'Malley & Langan. Our experienced Pennsylvania nursing home neglect lawyers can help you make things right.
