Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Our nursing home abuse attorney protects nursing home residents against neglect in Texas. Nursing home residents are physically (and sometimes mentally) vulnerable. They are unable to protect themselves. In many cases, they are unable or afraid to report neglect or abuse. It is often up to families and friends to notice neglect and take steps to protect their loved ones. If you suspect nursing home neglect or abuse, talk to an attorney at the Pascoe Law Firm in Galveston, Texas. Nursing home negligence is a serious problem that can cause serious injuries or wrongful death. Nursing home residents are entitled to dignity and care. A major cause of nursing home neglect is low-paid, poorly trained staff combined with management that is focused on profits. Nursing home staff may fail to monitor residents and neglect their care. In some egregious cases, staff have been found to abuse residents. Bed sores are an all-too-common problem in nursing homes. If the bed sores are un-diagnosed or untreated, gangrene and life-threatening infection can result. It is important in a nursing home to get appropriate medical attention, to administer medicines at the right times and in the right doses, and to perform medical procedures in accordance with accepted practices.
