Sonoma County Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Nursing Home Abuse in Petaluma?

Many families put their parents into nursing homes when they require constant nursing or medical care. These nursing homes are often excellent and provide quality care for our loved ones. Unfortunately, in some cases, there has been serious neglect and the family member has been found to be undernourished, dirty, or have been receiving abusive treatment of some sort, which is a type of elder abuse. In such a case, a legal case must be filed against the offending nursing home in order to protect the loved family member. These cases can result in beneficial changes for all the residents of nursing homes where neglect is occurring. If you are suspicious or have seen signs of neglect it is important to contact a Sonoma County personal injury attorney quickly in order to take legal action against the firm responsible.

Neglect in Sonoma County

An aging population creates a situation in which many nursing homes are opening and advertising quality care for the elderly. One wants to ensure that their loved parent is treated with kindness and gets the best quality of care. Sadly, in some cases this does not occur, and the elderly can be restrained, hit, become malnourished, dirty or made more helpless by the actions of workers who have no concern for the individual. These cases must be immediately handled with legal action. At the Law Offices of David R. Silva, the legal team takes such cases personally and is prepared to aggressively address any case of nursing home neglect for clients in the Sonoma County area.

There are a variety of signs to be alert to in nursing home neglect cases. Some of the most common signs of neglect include:

  • Bed sores
  • Depression or confusion
  • Bruising
  • Fractures
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration - flaky skin
  • Lack of cleanliness
  • Strong odor
  • Drugged appearance

Sadly, the elderly often cannot defend themselves and tend to take any pill given to them by a care worker. When unscrupulous nursing home personnel want to keep the clients manageable, they may selfishly over-medicate them. All of these activities are dangerous for the individual and may eventually lead to the death of the family member. If you suspect such neglect, it is vital that you contact the Law Offices of David R. Silva at once. Protect your loved one from nursing home neglect and refuse to allow excuses for low quality care or hygiene in any nursing home in which your loved one resides.
