Medical and Nursing Home Abuse Protecting the Rights of Those Who Have Been Injured

Miami Medical & Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Standing Up for Victims of Unjust Medical & Elder Care

Have you or a loved one been neglected and/or abused while in medical or elder care? At Remer, Georges-Pierre & Hoogerwoerd, PLLC, our Miami medical and nursing home abuse lawyers understand the pain and trauma that can result from such a scenario and we are here to help.

Being mistreated by a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional while in their care is one of the most nightmarish situations imaginable. Sadly, it happens more often than you may realize. Nursing Home Abuse Justice estimates that as many as 5,000,000 people are affected by elder abuse every single year.

According to the National Center for Victims of Crime, the breakdown of nursing home abuse is as follows:

  • Physical abuse: 27.4%
  • Resident-on-resident physical or sexual abuse: 22.1%
  • Psychological abuse: 19.4%
  • Gross neglect: 15.3%
  • Sexual abuse: 7.9%
  • Financial exploitation: 7.9%

Abuse while in medical care is common as well. If you or a loved one has been mistreated, you deserve justice. Contact Remer, Georges-Pierre & Hoogerwoerd, PLLC today to discuss your legal options.

Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Making the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home can be very difficult. Whether the placement of parents or loved ones is due to a short-term illness or declining ability to care for themselves, you have the right to expect that they will receive proper care.

Nursing home staff and the companies that operate them are legally obligated to provide an atmosphere that is physically and mentally safe. Unfortunately, the desire for monetary gain, poor management decisions, understaffing, inadequate training, or failure to oversee workers can lead to illegal abuse or neglect.

Our Miami nursing home abuse lawyers at Remer, Georges-Pierre & Hoogerwoerd, PLLC saw a need early on for a system of checks and balances to provide proper care of people in Pennsylvania nursing homes. Since lawsuits for neglect and abuse issues of the elderly first became possible nearly two decades ago, our attorneys have been on the cutting edge of holding nursing home companies accountable for any harm they cause.

Signs of Potential Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect

If you have a loved one in a nursing home, common problems you should watch for include:

  • Bedsores (pressure ulcers)
  • Slip and falls
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Medication errors
  • Bruises or injuries of unknown origin
  • Missed medical diagnoses
  • Wandering or elopement

If you suspect your family member is receiving substandard care or is a victim of neglect or abuse, do not wait to have your suspicions proved correct. Our experienced nursing home neglect attorneys can quickly assess the number of prior complaints or issues against a particular facility, investigate the matter, and determine if you have cause for concern. If something went wrong and you just do not know why, call us—we can find out for you.
