Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
Caring for our elderly is becoming a major concern within the United States. 36% of nursing homes in the U.S. have been guilty of elderly abuse laws and 91% of nursing homes in the U.S. are not adequately staffed to care for patients. We owe it, as a society, to make sure our seniors are treated properly and with dignity and respect. If you have a loved one who is in a nursing home and has been physically or verbally abused or has been a victim of a serious medication error or has simply not been cared for properly resulting in injury, call David S. Michel and let him seek justice and seek necessary redress. Ohio has a Nursing Home Resident’s Bill of Rights on the books which is to assure each nursing home resident is protected and guarantees a clean environment and gives residents the right to adequate and appropriate medical and nursing care. If the nursing home fails to meet these minimal standards then infections, bed sores, malnutrition, dehydration among other conditions can appear. If you have questions about the care and treatment your loved one is receiving in a nursing home contact David S. Michel and allow him to investigate your concerns.
