Senior Abuse and Neglect in Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities

Elder abuse and neglect is not a new problem. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, in 2017, 64% of nursing home staff confessed to abusing residents. In 2019, 1 in 5 emergency room visits from nursing home residents was due to neglect, according to the Office of Inspector General. Whether a senior is suffering from neglect or emotional, physical, sexual, or financial abuse, it must be stopped. If you suspect a loved one is being harmed at their nursing home or assisted living facility in Palm Beach County, our Palm Beach County Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Lawyers at Whittel & Melton are ready and willing to help you file an injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the facility.
