When we place our loved one in a nursing home, we expect they will be cared for and their needs will be met. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Negligence and elder abuse in nursing homes is common and serious. The National Center on Elder Abuse has stated that 1 out of every 20 elderly people has been victim of negligence and elder abuse.
Nursing home abuse and negligence can lead to mental and physical stress/pain and in some case death. Rockland Injury Lawyers have experienced and specialized nursing home attorneys who can handle elderly abuse cases.

If you see any of the following signs, then you might want to investigate and consider talking to a specialized attorney.
- Rapid weight loss
- Unexplained bruises or other injuries
- Sudden agitation or emotional withdrawal
- Bed sore development
- The substitution of heavy medication or sedatives for supervision
- The inability of a caretaker to sufficiently explain the patient’s condition
