Owensboro Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
It's not uncommon in our society to see the role of caretaker shift onto the younger generation when parents and aging loved ones can no longer take care of themselves. While some are happy and able to provide health care to an aging loved one, for others, this task may not be possible. In the end, many are forced to make the difficult choice of putting their parent or loved one in a nursing home.
Far too often in these situations, the elderly are left alone and unattended by their loved ones and even the nursing home attendants charged with their care. Apathy only breeds apathy in these cases, leading to deplorable conditions that should never be ignored.
Injuries Caused By Abuse And Negligence
I am attorney Evan Taylor and I've seen the damage caused by apathy and negligence in nursing homes. I've seen elderly patients suffer from:
- Bedsores caused by a lack of movement or turning over
- Broken bones and abrasions caused by slips and falls
- Malnutrition and dehydration caused by inattention nursing staff
- Infections caused by improper hygiene regimens
- Depression and anxiety caused by verbal abuse from the nursing staff
Injuries caused by nursing home abuse - whether they are physical or mental - can significantly degrade elderly patients' quality of life. In some cases, severe neglect and unattended injuries can even lead to the wrongful death of a loved one as well. Elderly patients deserve strong advocacy in situations like this, which is exactly what I provide at Evan Taylor Law Office PSC.
