When appearances lead to nursing home negligence suspicions

On Behalf of | Apr 11, 2018 | nursing home negligence

Like most adult children of elderly nursing home residents in Wyoming, you probably keep your eyes and ears open whenever you visit your loved one. It’s only natural you want to make sure your family member is being properly cared for and kept safe, especially since you can’t be there every day. If you begin to notice some troubling issues and suspect nursing home negligence, there is no time like the present to take action to protect your loved one.  

The law provides specific means to protect the rights of abused or neglected nursing home patients. There should be zero tolerance for substandard care that places vulnerable people in harm’s way. If you have reason to believe your loved one has been neglected or abused, the more evidence you can gather and documentation you compile to substantiate your claim, the better.  

If your family member has suffered injury or illness because of nursing staff negligence, there may be more than one party liable for damages. Hopefully, your loved will enjoy a swift and full physical recovery. Sadly, many similar situations throughout the nation end with fatal tragedies. While you can’t turn back the hands of time and prevent the negligence or abuse that occurred against your family member, you can aggressively pursue recovery for his or her losses and possibly prevent similar instances from occurring in the future.
