What Qualifies as Nursing Home Negligence?
Any type of abuse or neglect qualifies as negligence. Common examples include:
- Bed sores
- Falls and fractures
- Willful Deprivation
- Physical Abuse
- Wrongful death
- Sexual Abuse
- Medical errors
- Financial Exploitation
Statistics on nursing home neglect are often hard to come by, because elderly victims often do not file a complaint. The National Council on Aging found that as many as 84% of elder abuses cases went unreported.
Nonetheless, the tragedy of nursing home neglect is on the rise. The Illinois Department on Aging received 14,858 reports of elder abuse in 2015. That’s an increase of almost 4,000 reported cases since 2011. More than 30% of all nursing home residents experience some form of nursing home abuse whether it is by staff or other residents.
If you are unsure if you or a loved one have a case for nursing home negligence, call our attorneys today. Your consultation is free and confidential. Our team will answer any questions that you may have.
