Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing Home Abuse

Sunny clear skies and warm weather has made Florida one of the leading retirement capitals of the world. As a premier choice for senior citizens, the number of individuals entering Adult Living Facilities and Retirement homes has grown rapidly.  Families rely on these businesses, and their employees, to care for those they love that are in need. Unfortunately, every year senior citizens are injured and sometimes die due to the negligence, mismanagement, and lack of personal attention by staff members at these care facilities.

This abuse often goes undetected for a substantial length of time before loved ones are alerted or become aware of mistreatment. It is imperative that family members keep a close watch on their loved ones, the living facility, and staff members. If you have concerns about mistreatment, malpractice, and/or abuse in a nursing home, you should contact Florida Department of Children and Families (1-800-96-ABUSE) and our office at 1-833-MAKE-THE-CALL (625-3843)

Nursing home residents’ rights are guaranteed by the Federal 1987 Nursing Home Reform Law, which requires nursing homes to “promote and protect the rights of each resident”. Therefore, no nursing home patient should ever become a victim of abuse.  Although our team hopes you and your loved ones never have to experience such treatment, rest assured that if you do, Robinson Law will be available for you. If you have questions or concerns regarding nursing home abuse, dial 1-833-MAKE-THE-CALL (625-3843) for your FREE CONFIDENTIAL CONSULTATION.
