Your Loved Ones Deserve Dignity, Care, And Respect In Their Nursing Home Environment
Your elderly loved ones deserve the utmost in compassion and care. When you trust someone to provide care and that trust is betrayed, it’s hard to know where to turn.
Your senior friends, relatives, or wards may have been subject to abuse and neglect, including physical and emotional deprivation. They may have been left without food, water, medication, or the social interaction necessary to thrive. Sadly, Tampa nursing home abuse lawyers see cases like this all too often.
For over 25 years, Abrahamson & Uiterwyk has helped more than 15,000 clients in cases just like yours.
Nursing Home Abuse Statistics
If your loved one was abused in a nursing home, he or she is not alone. The following statistics show how unfortunately prevalent nursing home abuse is.
In May of 2008, the U.S. General Accountability Office completed a study that demonstrated abuse in licensed facilities is actually underestimated nationwide.
The majority of abuse surveys across the country fail to note at least one deficiency and more than ten percent do not denote when a nursing home resident was harmed or put in danger of being harmed.
One study of over 2,000 long-term care residents showed that nearly half stated they suffered abuse and that almost one hundred percent stated they were neglected or saw another resident being neglected.
In long-term care facilities, seven percent of complaints to the Ombudsmen’s office involved abuse, neglect or exploitation.
