Suspect Nursing Home Abuse? Take These Steps Immediately (Part 2)

In the last post, we discussed some of the initial steps to take after suspecting a case of nursing home neglect. However, it’s essential to understand the full process in order to navigate your case as efficiently as possible. Here’s part two of our guide that will address the next steps to take upon suspecting nursing home abuse.

Relocate Your Loved One

If you find, after collecting evidence, that your suspicions are substantiated, it’s essential to relocate your loved one to a new nursing home. You should definitely take the time you need to find a home that provides quality care to ensure that you don’t encounter this issue again, so don’t hesitate to hire an in-home caretaker or find another alternative to provide care until you find a facility you trust.

Consult an Attorney

Finally, it’s time to contact a qualified team of nursing home neglect lawyers that has your loved one’s best interests in mind. Your attorney should have experience working with and representing victims of nursing home abuse and their families. You should also keep the statute of limitations in mind, as many states are very limited regarding the time you have to file your case. A nursing home neglect attorney can provide you with the resources you need to navigate your case. They can help you dig deeper into your case and determine whether it’s truly substantiated and to what degree. They can also provide assistance when it comes to seeking compensation for damages and injuries sustained during the process and for the abused nursing home resident.

Remember, nursing home abuse cases certainly aren’t easy to handle, but a nursing home neglect attorney can navigate your case with complete confidentiality and maximize your chances for success and adequate compensation.

A recent study estimated that only one in 14 cases of elder abuse are ever reported to authorities. Knowing exactly how to handle the initial steps of a nursing home abuse case is the key to getting the compensation you and your loved one deserve.
