What to Do If You Suspect Nursing Home Abuse in Kentucky?
A vulnerable elderly nursing home resident may be embarrassed or afraid to speak up if he or she has been subject to nursing home abuse. Similarly, your loved one may physically or mentally be unable to inform you or another person of their being subjected to nursing home abuse.
If you suspect that the one you love has been the victim of abusive treatment, that person may need you to be their voice. Family or friends should first seek medical attention if they feel it is needed to protect the elder’s health and well-being. Next, gather any pertinent information in regards to the abuse (such as the names of the staff involved or the signs and symptoms observed) and file a complaint with the administrator of the nursing home. A final step is to contact a nursing home abuse lawyer to help see if relief can be obtained.
A qualified nursing home neglect lawyer can also be of great help when filing a complaint against a facility and getting justice for the one you love. Building a strong case may require consulting with medical professionals, reviewing nursing home paperwork, or conducting interviews, which all may be too much for one person or a family to handle, particularly when they are focusing on the comfort and happiness of their loved one. A nursing home abuse attorney will help you build an effective case if you decide to pursue legal action against a facility or its staff.
