Pittsburgh Elder Abuse Lawyer
Families who cannot provide needed medical care to an elderly or disabled family member often turn to nursing homes to provide that care. They trust that the staff at those nursing homes will provide better care than they can themselves. A violation of this trust is what often makes nursing home abuse and neglect cases so devastating.
At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we understand the devastation that families feel when a loved one has been injured by the treatment received in a nursing home. We help these families hold the nursing homes accountable in Pennsylvania courts.
We represent residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities who have been affected by many different illnesses and injuries — each leading to profound, permanent effects on ability to comprehend, intellect, memory and overall health:
- Bedsores or decubitus ulcers
- Prescription errors
- Lost patients
Why Does Nursing Home Neglect Happen?
One of the most common reasons that nursing home abuse and neglect happens is because nursing homes are run as for-profit businesses, cutting costs to maximize profits. People who work in these nursing homes and assisted living facilities are often underpaid, undertrained and overworked.
Unable to manage all of the people in their care, nursing home workers frequently fail to pay proper attention to their patients' medical needs. They fail to ensure that patients are getting proper medication or care.
