When you trust an assisted living home to take care of your loved one, the last thing you expect to happen is abuse or neglect. Unfortunately, abuse is all too common in facilities like this, and when it occurs, a compassionate Norristown nursing home abuse lawyer is ready to defend your loved one’s rights.

If your family member is being mistreated in a retirement facility, you might be able to file a lawsuit. A diligent personal injury attorney can explain all of the aspects of your case and instruct you on what steps to take to ensure justice for your relative.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse

Long-term care neglect can cause residents to get hurt because of unsafe conditions, lack of supervision, inadequate medication, et cetera. Beyond negligence, several types of abuse are deliberate and heinous, and families should understand them before transitioning their loved ones to an assisted living facility. These types of abuse include:

  • Physical
  • Psychological
  • Verbal
  • Sexual
  • Monetary

Employees might use threats, isolation, physical assault, sexual assault, or other abusive tactics to keep residents under their control. They might also try to manipulate them to steal their money. If families notice any suspicious charges from the nursing home, they should speak to a compassionate elder abuse attorney in Norristown.

Indicators of Abuse & Neglect in Assisted Living Facilities

Signs of abuse are often visible, such as residents roaming, which indicates a lack of supervision. If residents complain about their medication, it could mean the staff is not administering the right medicine or the proper dosage.

Conditions of the premises could also indicate neglect, like if the space is dusty or untidy, if trash bins are full, if floors are stained, et cetera. If the staff does not care for the premises, they are likely unable to care for residents properly too.

Perhaps the most critical signs of abuse are displayed by residents. When families visit their loved ones, they should note their demeanor, physical appearance, or changes in speech patterns. If any of these things seem unusual, family members should be cautious and aware of possible abuse. If a resident is concerned that they are experiencing mistreatment at the facility, the family should take it seriously.

Long-Term Care Regulations in Norristown

Nursing facilities in the local area undergo annual inspections by the Department of Health (DOH) to ensure they adhere to all regulations. DOH representatives observes:

  • The condition of the premises
  • Interactions between staff and residents
  • How much supervision there is
  • How the staff administers medication
  • Other important aspects of the home

They might also meet with residents to gather information about the quality of life the facility offers.

The DOH issues a report to the retirement home after the inspection which details any issues identified and the action required. In some cases, operations may be shut down, licenses revoked, healthcare terms limited, or other serious consequences occur.

Even though these inspections happen, abuse and neglect are still problems that many senior care center residents experience. It is best to reach out to a Norristown attorney if anyone suspects abuse occurring at a nursing home facility.
