Monsees & Mayer, P.C. has years of proven expertise and experience in protecting victims of nursing home abuse. We are confident in our ability to take on cases involving:
Most cases involving bedsores (decubitus ulcers) stem from neglect on the part of nursing home staff. In general, a resident develops sores on his or her skin after prolonged periods of lying or sitting in the same position. This is a preventable condition.
Elderly people can fall easily. Joints, bones, muscles, and neural networks simply break down over time. This requires the nursing home to properly evaluate a resident for a fall risk.
While some nursing home accidents simply can’t be prevented, many falls occur as a result of negligence on the part of the nursing home– particularly when the home knew a resident was at risk.
Sexual Abuse in nursing homes usually takes place because the resident is not able to communicate due to a medical condition, or if they are intimidated by the abuser. However, staff members are not the only ones who can be abusers. Residents with psychiatric disorders or criminal histories may sexually abuse other residents.
Nursing homes and medical facilities can be held liable for their failure to monitor employees and protect residents under their care.
