Our elders cared for us when we were young, and as they age they require the same individual care and attention they gave us. Unfortunately, there are cases where the people who we trusted to care for our loved ones neglect them and even abuse them physically and/or emotionally. This is simply unacceptable. If you believe that a family member is being neglected or abused while in the care of a nursing home, it is incumbent upon you to immediately take the necessary and precautionary action to help your loved one. Thankfully, there are lawyers who have experience in nursing home abuse. The law office of Pittman, Dutton & Hellums has more than 20 years of experience in personal injury law including nursing home abuse, and is available to assist you and your loved ones in Decatur and the rest of Alabama.
In an effort to save money, some nursing homes in Decatur hire fewer than the required number of nurses and attendants. A simple need by the nursing home patient may go unaddressed and harm may result. For example, bedsores often result from the lack of proper care and bathing. Other times, patients are not properly supervised when they walk. Unfortunately, when there is lack of assistance, patients may break their hips. If you suspect that your loved one has been abused or not cared for properly, please take the necessary action required and get help for them. You will feel so much better about yourself for doing the right thing, and of course, so will your dear parent, grandparent, aunt, or uncle.
