Learning that a loved one has suffered nursing home abuse in a Miami nursing home may leave you disgusted, upset, and unsure of what to do next. Your first step: contact a nursing home abuse lawyer who can work with you to help your loved one pursue a personal injury claim to seek the financial compensation they deserve for the nursing home's egregious breach of its duty of care to all residents. 

COMMON TYPES OF NURSING HOME ABUSE

Nursing home abuse can take several common forms.

Physical Abuse In A Nursing Home 

This occurs when a nursing home staff member uses physical force against your loved one in some way. Often, staff members will hurt the patient in a way that does not leave visible injuries or that can be hidden over the patient's clothes. 

Mental/Emotional Abuse In A Nursing Home 

This abuse is often verbal, but may include restricting the patient's access to loved ones. Often, staff members will attempt to isolate a resident, belittle them, or treat them as incompetent, even though they may still have much of their mental capability.

Sexual Abuse In A Nursing Home 

Unfortunately more common than you might expect, this occurs when a staff member forces sexual contact (including contact with the breasts or anus as well as the genitals) on a senior resident in the nursing home. 

Neglect In A Nursing Home 

Neglect takes place when nursing home staff members fail to meet the needs of the patient in a timely, effective manner. Medical neglect may occur when staff members fail to provide or seek needed medical care for a patient. Staff members are often more likely to neglect to provide a patient with food, water, or basic hygiene support.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR NURSING HOME ABUSE?

Most often, the nursing home bears responsibility for the actions of its staff members, including times when the staff may commit an act of abuse or negligence against the residents. Nursing homes must watch over their staff members and ensure adequate oversight to prevent instances of abuse, especially for patients who may not have the ability to speak up for themselves.

Others, however, may also be responsible for abuse in a nursing home. For example, if the nursing home uses a staffing agency that fails to fully vet its employees before sending them to work with vulnerable nursing home residents, and nursing home residents suffer abuse or neglect as a result, the staffing agency may bear responsibility for the actions of its employees. If a doctor employed by a nursing home fails to provide adequate care or to report signs of abuse, that doctor may share responsibility for the injuries your loved one sustained.

A Miami nursing home abuse lawyer can help you learn more about who may share liability for your loved one's abuse.

HOW CAN A NURSING HOME ABUSE LAWYER HELP?

If you or a loved one experienced abuse in a nursing home, you should contact a Miami nursing home abuse attorney as quickly as you can to learn more about your loved one's right to compensation. A lawyer can:

  • Help prove abuse or neglect. Often, nursing homes will try to cover their tracks, especially in cases of ongoing neglect that have impacted multiple patients.

  • Put together a highly effective claim that will establish the compensation your loved one deserves for the abuse suffered at the hands of nursing home staff members.
