Birmingham Nursing Home Abuse

Entrusting your parent or loved one to a nursing home or other elder care facility can be a difficult decision. If you ultimately decide to place your loved one in that setting, you should still monitor them to ensure they are well taken care of, and not abused or taken advantage of.

At Morgan & Morgan, we recognize nursing home abuse in Alabama for its grave injustice, and want to help protect the elderly in our state.

People of all ages deserve to be treated with dignity, especially those with limited ability to care for themselves. Our elder abuse lawyers in Birmingham are proud to have helped families throughout the state get justice for aged relatives who have been abused, neglected, traumatized, or injured by nursing home negligence and staff abuse. They may be able to help you, too, so contact us to find out more.

The Increasing Problem of Nursing Home Abuse

Americans are living longer than ever but are still plagued by age-related diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. Other diseases that make taking care of oneself more difficult also tend crop up more frequently in old age, like diabetes and limited-mobility diseases, among others. At a time when kind and compassionate care is most needed, the elderly too often don’t receive it.

The nursing home industry was once dominated by small retirement homes, government-run facilities, and responsible religious entities but has increasingly attracted large companies concerned with profit, and not necessarily the quality of care provided to your family members. This industry boom has led to limited oversight, and as a result, your loved ones' needs suffer to the detriment of their health and well-being.

Common Signs of Abuse

The Alabama Aging and Disability Resource Center provides some important tips on recognizing elder abuse and how to go about eliminating it.

Several other ways of determining if elder abuse is taking place exist:

  • Bedsores
  • Unexplained and recurring bruises
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Consistently poor hygiene
  • Extreme fear or anxiety
  • Unexplained infections
  • Unexplained injuries

This is just a start. You should follow up on any abnormalities in your loved one’s behavior, physical appearance, or nursing home situation.
