Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse
The Cuffie Law Firm – Nursing Home Negligence – Elder Abuse
If you have reason to believe that an elderly parent or grandparent is being mistreated, neglected, or exploited in a nursing home or assisted living facility, contact the Atlanta elder abuse attorneys at the Cuffie Law Firm.
Our understanding of the state and federal regulations that bear upon the treatment of elders in nursing care situations, the handling of complaints, and the training and screening of the employees who work in nursing or long-term care facilities, are all highly useful in our independent investigation and litigation of elder abuse claims.
The nursing home neglect attorneys at the Cuffie Law Firm can help you and your elderly loved one in such cases as:
>Malnutrition, dehydration, or other serious neglect at residential facilities
>Mistakes in medication
>Improper supervision resulting in wandering off, falls from bed, or untreated bedsores
>Negligent hiring or background screening of employees leading to physical or sexual assault or financial exploitation
The Atlanta nursing home negligence attorneys at our firm are familiar with the Patient’s Bill of Rights enforced by the Georgia Department of Human Resources, which also is responsible for monitoring conditions and keeping violations records for nursing homes, intermediate care homes, and other residential facilities. We can work with the Department to identify those dangerous or harmful conditions that your facility may have ignored in the past, or failed to correct. Our skilled trial lawyers can take it from there.
We also represent plaintiffs in cases where the victim is a developmentally disabled adult, convalescent patient, or otherwise needs fulltime assistance with the demands of daily living for an extended period of time.
