Nursing Home Abuse
Helping Nursing Home Abuse Victims in Gainesville and Ocala
Millions of Americans live in nursing homes or long-term care facilities. That number is expected to grow as baby boomers age and live longer. Unfortunately, many of the vulnerable residents die from preventable conditions such as infected bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration, and fractures suffered due to inadequate supervision or lack of assistance. Thousands more across the country are injured, exploited, or mistreated.
The reasons for nursing home neglect and abuse are many, but are often a result of poor facility management and inadequate staffing. If your loved one has suffered an injury, illness or premature death due to mistreatment at the hands of nursing home staff or facility administration, you do have rights. Contact the Law Office of Laurie D. Mitchell. She will explain your rights, identify the violations that occurred and provide you with strong legal representation.
