Long Beach Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Nursing Home Care Is a Key Issue Affecting Society’s Most Vulnerable Members

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of 2014 there were 15,600 nursing homes in the U.S., with 1.4 million residents. There were an additional 28,900 residential care communities, with over 811,000 residents. The number of older adults living in nursing homes and assisted living centers is expected to grow considerably over the next years and decades, and this makes nursing home care an extremely important issue to consider.

Serving Long Beach and all of California, as well as the entire U.S., we at Garcia & Artigliere are here to offer experienced insight and guidance if a loved one has experienced any type of abuse or negligence at a nursing home or elder care center.

Recognizing the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

It is an unfortunate truth that elderly patients and residents at nursing homes, elder care centers, and residential care communities are sometimes abused or neglected by the very people entrusted with their well-being. You need to be aware of the signs of nursing home abuse so it can be stopped.

The following may be signs that abuse is occurring at a nursing home:

  • Your loved one is withdrawn, depressed, fearful, and/or anxious
  • You are not allowed to be alone with your loved one
  • Your loved one has experienced unexplained or recurring injuries
  • Your loved one was recently diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease
  • Your loved one is showing signs of dehydration or malnutrition
  • You have noticed signs of poor personal hygiene or unclean property grounds
  • Your loved one isafraid of a specific caregiver

If you notice anything suspicious, do not be afraid to follow up. It is better to investigate the matter than to look the other way and miss a serious case of abuse or neglect. We also recommend making frequent, unannounced visits and staying in close communication with your elderly loved one so you can notice any signs of mistreatment.
