Negligence in Phoenix nursing homes is a serious problem. Although not every nursing home or assisted living facility is guilty of this practice, those that are may cause serious injury or emotional trauma to elderly patients and residents. If you believe that a loved one has been the victim of any form of negligence at a nursing home in the Phoenix area, please do not hesitate to contact Goldwater Law Firm, P.C. today. A Phoenix nursing home negligence lawyer at our offices can meet with you during a free consultation to talk to you about what you believe is occurring and how we can take action to stop the situation from continuing to occur – as well as how you can hold the negligent facility responsible for their actions.
A nursing home negligence attorney may be able to assist you in filing a civil suit against the nursing home where your loved one was injured. In doing so, you can seek financial damages that can help with medical care and other expenses, as well as increase awareness of elder neglect and the serious consequences of this problem.
As opposed to nursing home abuse, which typically involves intentional misconduct and physical abuse, negligence in a nursing home involves a failure to provide a proper level of care. This may result in inadequate nutrition causing malnutrition, poor medical treatment, unclean living quarters, dehydration, bedsores, and a myriad of other problems, all stemming from a facility or caregiver not providing the level of care that an elderly resident or patient deserves. Nursing home negligence may lead to serious injury or even the wrongful death of an elderly patient.
