Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse
Connecticut Nursing Home Negligence Claims
If your elderly parent or close relative has suffered from negligence or abuse in a nursing home, contact our office in Bridgeport or Danbury. Our familiarity with the state and federal regulations and licensing requirements for nursing homes, together with our ability to investigate and prove the facts that can establish liability against a negligent facility, can help restore some of the dignity your loved one might have lost to negligent or abusive treatment.
Budget pressures, high turnover among low-paid staff, insufficient training, and similar administrative problems can lead to erratic and unreliable care for nursing home patients. Among the problems this can cause for elderly residents are the following:
Stage III or Stage IV pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores
Falls from bed, in showers, or in hallways
Improper or irregular administration of prescription medications
Infections caused or aggravated by deficiencies in nutrition, hydration, or sanitation
Wandering unattended in the halls, around the grounds, or even off the premises
Physical attacks or sexual assaults
We not only investigate the factual circumstances of the immediate claim, we also look for evidence of prior complaints, license violations, warning letters, or other signs of chronic administrative problems.
Even in the absence of a history of problems at a particular nursing home, we can still pursue claims of negligence against the facility and its operators. Negligence can occur at even the safest and best managed institutions.
