The elderly represent the fastest growing segment of our population. The number of people who rely on nursing homes and other long term medical facilities to care for them as they age has increased as well. As a result, devastating cases of nursing home neglect, abuse, and injury in Florida and throughout the country have become more common. Many cases are the result of inadequate or improperly trained staff.

Nursing home neglect includes:

  • Failure to assist in personal hygiene
  • Failure to provide appropriate food, clothing and shelter
  • Failure to provide appropriate medical care
  • Failure to prevent or treat malnutrition and dehydration
  • Failure to prevent falls

Nursing home abuse includes:

  • Development of bed sores and ulcers
  • Excessive and/or rapid weight loss
  • Broken bones and/or unexplained falls
  • Open wounds, cuts, bruises, or welts
  • Unexplained or unexpected death
