    Negligent Care and Abuse

    Lack of staff and resident supervision is often the cause of negligent treatment and abuse at nursing homes. With too few doctors and RNs on staff, many nursing homes rely primarily on nurses’ aides for resident care. If the staff is undertrained and overworked, residents may be at risk for:

    • Bedsores
    • Dehydration and malnutrition
    • Medication errors
    • Wandering off
    • Falls and fractures

    In addition to acts of negligence, some nursing home residents are subject to physical, mental or sexual abuse, as well as theft of their property or assets. In the worst cases, the injuries can lead to wrongful death.

    Our Houma nursing home abuse attorneys can investigate the facility to determine who is liable for the injury or death. Gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses is an important part of building a strong case. We also work with medical experts to document the cause and extent of the injuries.
