Hillsborough County Nursing Home Negligence

What is Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect?

Our Hillsborough County Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse Attorneys at Whittel & Melton handle all types of nursing home litigation, including when senior or dependent adult in a nursing home or assisted living facility in the greater Tampa area experiences:

Abuse

Nursing home or assisted living facility abuse includes physical abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse, abandonment, isolation, abduction, and all other mistreatment that results in physical harm, pain or mental suffering.

Neglect

Nursing home and assisted living facility neglect and abuse includes failure to provide medical care for physical and mental health needs, not helping residents with personal hygiene, eating, drinking, getting dressed, getting in and out bed, going to the bathroom, etc., failing to protect residents from health and safety hazards, and failure to prevent malnutrition or dehydration.

The sad reality is that any unexpected injury, illness, or death may be a sign of abuse or neglect, so if you believe something is awry at your loved one’s nursing home or assisted living facility, then your suspicions should be thoroughly investigated.
