- Nursing Home
If your elderly loved one has suffered abuse or neglect, contact Carr & Carr Personal Injury Lawyers to see if we can help you. Types of abuse include physical, sexual, financial, emotional, abandonment, neglect and abuse by another resident.In nursing homes, abuse and neglect can happen to any resident. However, it typically occurs to residents who do not have the physical or mental ability to tell family, friends or nursing care staff. Nursing home abuse in Arkansas is an intentional or negligent infliction of injury, confinement, intimidation that results in physical or mental harm.
Signs of physical abuse include unexplained bruising, skin tears or damage, fractures and other similar types of unexplained or unusual injuries.
Nursing home neglect occurs when the nursing home staff fails to provide care necessary to keep the resident safe from physical harm. Neglect can cause bedsores, dehydration, malnutrition, injuries from the use of restraints, as well as injuries as a result of the resident wandering away from the facility due to improper supervision. Additionally, residents who have been neglected in terms of having their conditions adequately assessed by nursing staff can often result in falls and fractures and can ultimately lead to death.
Assisted living facilities Arkansas are prohibited by regulation from accepting or keeping residents who need more care and supervision than an assisted living environment can provide. If assisted living facilities violate those regulations and the resident becomes injured, the facility may be responsible.
The lawyers at Carr and Carr Personal Injury Attorneys understand how heartbreaking it is for families when a loved one is hurt in a nursing home or assisted living facility. Neglect or abuse can cause a decline in health due to injury or even cause an early death.
