Due to the high number of senior citizens in Pasco County and throughout the state, Florida has a soaring number of patient loads which places a huge need on nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Due to the high volume of patients, there have been staff shortages that can create dangerous conditions for patients left in the facility’s care. When a facility is under staffed, numerous hazards can occur, such as a facility failing to properly screen their employees, which can result in the hiring of individuals with criminal backgrounds who are more likely to commit physical and sexual abuse. This has been a continuing crisis for many nursing homes and assisted living facilities, and because this is an ongoing issue, abuse and neglect continue to happen at alarming rates.
When nursing home neglect and abuse cases arise, there can be many complicating factors, some of which could have been occurring over an extended period of time. In order to uncover the full scope of the problem, you must have the help of an attorney who can review the nursing home records and identify any indicators of abuse. Our Pasco County Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse Lawyers at Whittel & Melton have extensive experience with nursing home and assisted living facility abuse and neglect cases, so we have the skills and resources to hold these facilities fully liable for their despicable actions.
