Types of Nursing Home Neglect

Emotional and social neglect occurs when an elderly person is repeatedly left alone. Perhaps a caretaker fails to provide adequate social interaction, ignores the elderly individual, or purposefully speaks rudely to their charge. Physical neglect is easier to identify.

Failure to adequately bathe, clothe, provide laundering, and perform general hygiene practices are all types of physical neglect. Basic needs are neglected if a home fails to provide food and water, or comfortable shelter, for the elderly individual. If a home does not administer medications, respond appropriately to medical emergencies, or fails to prevent the spread of disease, it can be considered medical neglect.

Neglect is a Form of Abuse. Respond Quickly & Effectively With Our Help.

If the abuse is thoroughly documented, you will have a better chance at a successful claim against the nursing home. Consult with our experienced Berkeley County personal injury lawyers to build your claim, providing your loved one with the chance to get justice. Pursuing a nursing home neglect claim not only can help your loved one, but can also protect the rest of the elderly persons under the care of that home. We are passionate about protecting those who cannot stand up for themselves.
