Sea Bright NJ Nursing Home Abuse

When placing your loved ones into a nursing home, the last thing you want to hear about is some employees mistreating senior citizens or even abusing them. Residents of nursing homes often suffer a number of serious injuries a year, including malnutrition, dehydration, falls, bedsores, and psychological abuse.

Emotional abuse is considered any action inflicted on an individual by another person that causes psychological harm. In nursing home and rehabilitation facilities, this often comes in the form of verbal abuse, humiliation, or isolation. Often this is an assertion of dominance or control over someone more vulnerable.

Residents of nursing homes also suffer sexual abuse and physical abuse. These forms of abuse are particularly heinous because nursing residents often have no way of defending themselves from being hit or inappropriate touching. Any sexual molestation is a very serious crime and should be punished. Any victim of nursing home sexual abuse may be eligible for financial compensation.

If you or a loved one have suffered nursing home abuse, call our personal injury office today at 888-355-4752.

Sea Bright NJ Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can fall into several categories in the United States, including prescription problems, botched surgeries, and delayed diagnoses.

Negligence by doctors can be particularly harmful in the United States because these are the people who we often give our entire lives to. A surgeon who is intoxicated or is on any form of substance that can seriously affect the outcome of a surgery can lose his job and his entire career in the medical profession if he’s not careful. Prescription problems can also be deadly (see the case of Michael Jackson’s doctor, who went to jail for two years for involuntary manslaughter), and should never be treated lightly.

A common form of medical malpractice is caused by anesthesiologists, who often give too much anesthesia to the patient, fail to check the patient’s medical history for possible complications, don’t tell the patient of the risks involved if preoperative instructions aren’t followed, fail to monitor the patient’s vital signs, and use defective equipment.
