What conduct is considered nursing home abuse or neglect in Sacramento?

Numerous experts, including the Cleveland Clinic and the Administration for Community Living (ACL), home to the Office of Long-Term Care Ombudsman Programs, identify five distinct classifications of nursing home abuse. Our California nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers have the expertise to identify the type of abuse, determine responsibility, and advocate for full compensation on behalf of your loved one.

  • Physical abuse. A nursing home staff member or someone with access to the facility physically harming a resident and causing pain or physical injuries. Examples: slapping, hitting, pushing, punching, or restraining a resident against their will.
  • Sexual abuse. A resident is forced to participate in or witness sexual activities without their consent, whether by a nursing home employee or an individual allowed into the facility.
  • Gross neglect. The intentional failure to meet a resident's basic physical, emotional, or social needs, such as nutrition, medication, shelter, grooming, and family contact. Self-neglect and abandonment are additional forms of neglect.

Unfortunately, many nursing home residents endure one or more forms of abuse during their stay. Nursing homes in Sacramento may be held liable if anyone associated with the facility, including staff, managers, or other residents, engages in abusive or neglectful behavior.

At Garcia & Artigliere, our Sacramento nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers pursue personal injury or wrongful death claims when a loved one is harmed or dies due to a negligent nursing home.
