If you have reason to believe that a person assigned to a nursing home, elderly parent, or grandparent is being mistreated, neglected, or exploited in assisted living facility, contact the Cuffie Law Firm. Our understanding of the state and federal regulations that deal with the treatment of elders in nursing care, the handling of complaints, and the training and screening of the employees who work in nursing or long-term care facilities, are all highly useful in our independent investigation and litigation of elder abuse claims.
The nursing home neglect may consist of:
- Malnutrition, dehydration, or other serious neglect at residential facilities
- Mistakes in medication
- Improper supervision resulting in wandering off, falls from bed, or untreated bedsores
- Negligent hiring or background screening of employees leading to physical or sexual assault or financial exploitation
Our firm is familiar with the Patient’s Bill of Rights enforced by the Georgia Department of Human Resources, which also is responsible for monitoring conditions and keeping violations records for nursing homes, intermediate care homes, and other residential facilities. We can work with the Department to identify those dangerous or harmful conditions that your facility may have ignored in the past, or failed to correct. Our skilled trial lawyers can take it from there.
We also represent plaintiffs in cases where the victim is an adult that is developmentally disabled, convalescent patient, or otherwise needs fulltime assistance with the demands of daily living for an extended period of time. For additional information about our ability to help your family, contact an Atlanta elder abuse lawyer at the Cuffie Law Firm.
