When you entrust a loved one into the care of a nursing home, you have the right to expect that they will be properly cared for. Unfortunately, that expectation is not always met. Sometimes, loved ones are not always treated with professional care. Other times, loved ones can be outright abused. These actions can lead to serious personal injury and mental anguish to your loved one. If you suspect or see any signs of abuse or neglect to a loved one in a nursing home, do something about it today.
The lawyers of O’Toole Law Firm. have more than 25 years of combined experience. We put the knowledge gained throughout our years of practice to use standing up for the rights of those abused or neglected in nursing homes throughout Florida, including Naples, Plantation, Weston, Hollywood, Coral Springs, Tamarac, Delray Beach, West Palm Beach, Boynton Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami.
Our lawyers are available to represent you or your loved one in cases in which nursing home neglect has led to brain injury, spinal injury, other severe injury, or wrongful death. Some examples of nursing home neglect are..
- Preventable Falls (falls that could have been prevented through adequate monitoring)
- Bed Sores and Infections (improper attention and failure to move a resident in bed can lead to serious bed sores, which in turn can lead to severe infections)
- Wrong Medication or Lack of Medication
- Malnutrition and Dehydration (failure to feed or provide water to a nursing care resident)
