What Should You Do if You Suspect Nursing Home Abuse?
December 5th, 2017| Berg Injury Lawyers, our California nursing home abuse lawyers do everything we can to help victims and their families get the compensation they deserve after poor and potentially harmful treatment in nursing home facilities. However, it’s also important for family members to act immediately to help their loved ones avoid further health problems and to get them on the path to recovery. If you suspect nursing home abuse or neglect, you should:
- Speak with a doctor, nurse, or manager. A healthcare professional or member of management staff at the nursing home can evaluate your loved one’s condition and may be able to shed light on what’s happening.
- Call 911 if your loved one’s health is in immediate danger. In some cases, nursing home abuse and neglect can be life-threatening. If your loved one’s health issues are being ignored or improperly treated, he or she may need transportation to a hospital.
