Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence

[nursing home photo]Baltimore nursing home abuse victims can obtain a free legal consultation from attorney Joseph H. Ostad.  If a close friend or family member lives in a Baltimore or Washington, D.C. nursing home, you may be concerned about their living conditions.

Are they being appropriately treated  by the nursing staff?  Are they receiving the right medications?  Are they being over medicated?  Is the nursing home staff physically or mentally abusing them?

Unfortunately, not all nursing homes are welcome and safe environments for the elderly.  Because of cost cutting, negligent hiring, inadequate supervision and other reasons, many elderly living in nursing homes find themselves being abused, afraid of speaking out, and unable to advocate on their own behalf.

When you visit a nursing home, see how your friends or family members react in that environment.  If they seem fearful or withdrawn, appear neglected, have unexplained bruises, or are malnourished, they may need you to speak up for them. Due to social isolation and/or mental impairment, elders in distress may not have the capacity to seek help by themselves.

If you believe an elderly fried or relative is suffering from abuse or negligence in a Baltimore or Washington D.C. nursing home, we'd like to hear from you. Contact me online or call me at 1-800-320-0080 to set up a FREE consultation to discuss how we may be able to assist.
