San Diego Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
About Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse
What is nursing home negligence or abuse? These are two situations wherein an elderly patient or resident of a nursing home or assisted living facility is mistreated or is not properly cared for. Nursing home negligence typically refers to situations where the elderly patient does not receive proper care, and may be related to medical malpractice, malnutrition or dehydration. Nursing home abuse, on the other hand, typically refers to situations that involve physical abuse, sexual abuse and other types of intentional misconduct. Regardless of whether abuse or neglect is the foundation of maltreatment at a San Diego nursing home, the results may be grave.
Fortunately, a San Diego nursing home abuse attorney can help.
